The almost impeccable cleanliness of the streets, cold restraint, high standards and standard of living – all this can be found in Zurich, spread out on the banks of the Limmat River. The spirit of age-old order and a long-established respectable way of life seems to be hovering in this city.
The architecture in the historical part of Zurich is not distinguished by luxury – everything here serves practicality and reasonableness. The thousand-year-old facades of the Fraumunster and Grossmunster cathedrals amaze with their monumentality, but not with splendor, the stone paving stones of the squares are in harmony with the beauty of the facades of Bahnhofstrasse, and behind the closed doors of Swiss banks, the fate of the world is being decided.
Zurich doesn’t need to flaunt itself. In this city, you can feel the power and boundless wealth that hides behind the walls of obscenely expensive boutiques, watch shops and modest facades of residential neighborhoods.
