The Romans founded Zurich almost 2000 years ago, and ruins can still be seen around the city. Today, with 380,000 inhabitants, it is truly a bustling metropolis. It also has a rich religious history as the first Swiss city to take part in the Reformation in the 16th century.
One of the things I love about Zurich is that there are so many things to see and do. In the Old Town area, winding cobblestone streets give way to open squares ringed by shops, cafes and public fountains (There are 1,200 here). In the spring, colorful flowers adorn residential window boxes and I found photo opportunities literally around every corner.
