Basel

 
Basel Basel, the third largest city of Switzerland, is known as a pharmaceutical multinational centre. However, it would be a bit narrow-minded to leave it at that. Basel is an interesting arty city, split up by the river Rhine and its medieval past is endowed with some of the greatest minds of European history, including Erasmus, Ulrich Zwingli and later Friedrich Nietzsche and Hermann Hesse. Its long-standing patronage of the arts has resulted in a ponoply of first-rate museums and galleries, which are well worth visiting, as is its historic centre. The right bank (better known as Kleinbasel) is the more modern centre. On the left bank (Grossbasel), one can trace the history of Basel in the old town that is ruled by the M...
 

Geneva

 
Geneva Say 'Geneva' to a person and what will come up first An inhabitant of the city itself will probably say that it is 'a continent on its own'. Say it to a foreigner and he or she will probably refer to the building of the United Nations located in Geneva.

Nyon

 
Nyon Nyon is a very nice city located on the borders of Lac Leman (kak Lake of Geneva). It is reached in twenty minutes from Geneva with regular trains. Steep streets with old houses lead up from the lake to the white Chateau. The Chateau can be visited but was closed for restauration when I was there (Jan 2004). From Nyon you can make boat trips to Evian and Geneva. The view accross the lake is spectacular on a clear day you see the Mont Blanc. At the time of the Romans the city was named Julia Equestrius. It has many features demonstrating that it was once an important Roman colony. As you walk down from Place Perdtemps you may spot an amphitheatre, discovered during some building works for appartments that ...
