The Swiss Confederation is formed from 23 cantons, of which 3 are divided in half-cantons; also of very different dimensions among them, where 4 official languages (German, French, Italian and Romansh) are spoken and where different religions are professed.
There is a cohabitation without any problem and a national strong compactness.
The nation is little, alpine, uniformly inhabited, very good.
It is rich of mountains, of very beautiful lakes, of well cultivated valleys, of very pleasant historical towns.
You can think to the splendid Berne, Freiburg, Lucerne, Zug, Schaffhausen, Schwyz . But the most eye-catcher things of the Switzerland are the roads and the railways risky. They rise everywhere, with breathtaking elbows and striking declines. They reach the top where the glance sweeps over mountains, glaciers, lakes, vallyes of an infinite sweetness and a monumental beauty.
