Parlez-vous Francais? The right place to put your language skills at use is the Western side of the country on the shores of Europe’s largest lake, the emerald-like Lake Geneva, half-owned by France. Surrounded by the Alps on one side and vineyards on the other, the charm of this place is absolutely hypnotic. Moving south, skiing and snowboarding are top activities for tourists attracted by the magnetic beauty of the Swiss Alps during winter, whereas hiking and biking are common on summertime. Make sure you check out The Matterhorn, a pyramid-shaped mountain breaking all records in terms of tourists. Equally popular, one of the world’s natural wonders not to be missed is the tremendous Aletsch Glacier, the largest in Europe, part of the UNESCO world heritage. For the luxury-seekers, look no further than St. Moritz, an exclusivist holiday resort where Prada and Chanel seem to be the official uniform.
