Switzerland is small but sweet – with four languages and four lots of history, it has a diverse culture and no two places are alike. The land of cuckoo clocks and fine chocolate, the country’s motto is “Unity, yes; uniformity, no,” giving you the opportunity to discover diversity in a peaceful, collaborative environment. In a society where multiple languages are spoken, the Swiss have earned their reputation for diplomacy.
The Swiss are famous for their achievements in the competitive fields of finance, medicine, and design, but they have a softer side as well, with a profound love of family and the natural world. The Swiss are passionate about outdoor sports, especially hiking, skiing, and bicycling in the beautiful mountains and forests.
