What to see at the The Zurich
During its past Zurich had been well known to be a haven for refugees and persecuted people. It started with the Protestant Huguenots who fled France where they were persecuted. Then came the philosophers from the Age of Enlightenment, the Jews, Casanova, the Dadaists, and even Lenin and Trotsky established themselves in the Swiss metropolis.
Zurich boasts one of the most animated nightlife of Switzerland along with many events and a very active cultural scene. The city has no less than 50 different museums and more than 100 galleries. A must see is the Swiss National Museum where you can discover the history of the Swiss Confederation. For arts lovers the Bührle foundation.is the perfect place to admire several masterpieces from famous painters such as Monet, Degas, Cezanne and many others.
Zurich as the largest city of Switzerland would not be complete without a good shopping area. One of the nicest shopping area is the pedestrian area named Niederdorf. This area is located in the historical center and goes from Bellevue to the “Central” quarter. This area is composed of lots of small shops, bars and restaurants. And if the day is dedicated to shopping, at night the area becomes an exciting place for entertainment.
