The last stop, then, was Zurich. The first Swiss city I had ever known about is Zurich, when I heard names of various European cities on the weather forecast in China. Of course I had no idea “su li shi” in Chinese was actually Zurich, the largest city in Switzerland, until much later.
The trip to Zurich was mostly a leisurely one with only the Kunsthaus (museum of art) as the must-go destination for my chef. The rest of the time was spent wandering around the city and enjoying the beautiful view of Lake Zurich with none other than the mountain ranges in the distance. So perfect.
A view of the left bank of the Limmat river that runs through Zurich, with guild houses along the river. Zurich has been a top-ranked city in several quality of living surveys in the past few years (and I wonder if the cost of living is directly proportional).
