Switzerland is a landlocked country in Central Europe. Its culture is heavily influenced by the three neighboring giants France, Italy and Germany.

The geography of Switzerland is notable for its great diversity. Switzerland homes three main geographical regions – Jura Mountains in North West, Alps in south and a plateau in central region. The scenic landscape of Switzerland is the main attraction of Switzerland tourism. The beautiful mountains are especially inviting in summer, when the cool Swiss ambience adds to the attraction.

Although Alps Mountains makes for majority of land area, it is in the Central Plateau that major chunk of population lives and it also homes major cities. The plateau stretches from Lake Geneva in the south west to Lake Constance in north east.

The towns are not far away. The villages are even nearer. The countryside in plateau has a highly organized look. The fields are of disciplined shapes. Fields are small. The practice is not to dedicate endless area to single crop but various crops are intermingled in small areas.

Jura is a limestone range stretching from Lake Geneva to Rhine and makes for about twelve percent of land area of Switzerland. With an average height of seven hundred meters this picturesque highland is crossed by river valleys. Numerous fossils and dinosaur tracks have been found in Jura region. It is from Jura that the term Jurassic period was coined.

Alps ranges homes forty eight mountains which are four thousand meters or higher and about one thousand and eight hundred glaciers. Alps is a towering phenomenon which controls the climate and vegetation of Switzerland. There are several rivers that divide the mountain ranges.

Major chunk of tourism happens in Alps and foothills. The universe of Swiss Alps is one that of wild beauty. Mountain peaks soar into sky. There are awe inspiring glaciers and gigantic rock formations. Frothy streams gush down mountains with so much arrogance that they have no thought of their placid end in oceans. Cascading waterfalls can be seen throughout the valleys. Lakes are gorgeous with the reflection of windswept pines and larch trees shimmering on their blue surface. Meadows are dotted by multi-hued mountain flowers. Wooden rest houses invite tourists to relax. Cogwheel trains and cable cars are available to take you to mountain tops. The lakes of Alps region are of immense attraction. Pristine beaches invite you for a swim while crystal clear waters glitter in sunlight. Sailboats and steam boats alike meander through their chest. They are numerous! Wherever you go next is awaiting you.
