Zurich is one of the most developed cities of Switzerland. With low tax rates prevailing there many companies prefer their head quarters to be there. Besides it is thriving in financial business with a number of well reputed banks and other financial institutions. Apart from all these it houses a large number of research institutes which are conducting researches on different subjects. When I had to go there as a part of my official work, I was quite thrilled as I have seen the beauty of Switzerland in many pictures. The snow covered mountains and ice skiing children were the first to come in my mind whenever I think about Switzerland. Being an official tour, the flight tickets provided by the company will be in one of the cheap airlines. Without much effort I could get inexpensive flight tickets and I reached there as per my schedule.
After completing my official duties I took a bit of time from the schedule to visit a few places there.
I went for shopping too. The most interested places where the art museums which displayed the ancient art form and the contemporary ones. Earlier I had to visit some research centers as a part of my job and the neatness I have seen there was also visible in these museums also. The city is well known for its neatness and recently announced as the most livable city in the world. With a number of visitors coming to the city daily, it is very difficult to maintain the neatness. Still the administration is taking care. Almost all airlines are operating flights to Zurich. The city is well connected with rest of the country by roads and rail too. That makes people to reach here without any difficulties and being a tourist centre and a center for business activities the crowd is increasing day by day. After the introduction of cheap flights to Zurich it is again increasing.
As most of the places of importance are located within a short distance it was very easy to see those churches and monuments in a day. The area between the Lake Zurich and the main railway station houses most of these sites. Besides the churches there are many museums also situated in this area. The National museum for industrial designs is another attraction in this city. It contains a variety of industrial designs of various products and the people there told me that there are several institutes in the city those provides training in industrial designing. Many manufacturing companies from all over the world send their employees here for further training. As cheap tickets to Zurich are available nowadays, it is not a costly affair for such manufacturing companies.
When I returned after finishing my work, I had a feeling that I could not see the city entirely. This made me to plan for a holiday trip to Zurich next time.
