is for History which Zurich has plenty to offer!  Founded as “Turicum” by the Romans around 200 AD, Zurich became an independent city in 1261 and joined the Swiss Confederation in 1351.  A medieval town with many churches, such as the Grossmünster, St. Peter’s Church or the Fraumünster together with pretty town squares such as the Münsterhof and the elevated Lindenhof make Zurich such a picture-perfect place. Be sure to book a guided tour through Zurich’s old town or visit the Swiss National Museum located behind the train station where you will learn all about the history of Switzerland – it will be an unforgettable experience!
