Climate in Switzerland and weather forecast - best seasons for visit
Winter in the highlands of Switzerland is snowy and cold. In some regions, snow lasts for more than six months. Such climatic conditions contribute to the development of ski tourism. Lowland in the mountainous areas is constantly shrouded in fog, but it is always sunny and warm in highlands. Winter in the plains is less severe. Snow in Bern and Zurich lies no more than two or three weeks. In Geneva and in Lausanne, it is snowy even less. Near the Italian border, there is no snow at all, and lakes are almost never covered by ice. The beginning of spring in Switzerland is quite cold. However, by the middle of April, all the vegetation begins to bloom and the air is filled with incredible scents of magnolias, tulips, and camellias. The air temperature rises gradually, but the snow does not melt. The warmest cities are Geneva and Zurich; the average temperature in the middle of spring rises to 16 degrees Celsius. The rainy season begins at the end of April. By the end of May, the air temperature is rising up to +19 degrees in the warmest regions.
Atmosphere of Switzerland: politics
The country's parliament consists of two chambers. The first is called the National Council and it embodies the entire Swiss people. The second chamber is the Cantonal Council that represents the cantons as a whole. The first large chamber includes 200 deputies. They are elected every 4 years by the people in every canton. The small chamber of the cantons includes 46 members. There are two representatives from each canton, and one from the half canton, which is a full-fledged subject of the federation. According to the basic rules of the majority system, the people of each canton elect representatives of the region to the Cantonal Council. Both chambers of the Government are engaged in approving federal laws and strict control over the actions of the Federal Council, including the President. The peculiarity of the political structure of Switzerland is the relative equality of both chambers of Parliament, so that large cantons are not able to press on small areas.
