Switzerland - moving around the country
Swiss Travel System operates in Switzerland. It enjoys an incredible popularity among tourists. Thanks to this system, you can buy tickets for any public transport in Switzerland, if the transport company works with this system. It’s possible to buy a ticket that serves for any transport, including airplane and ferry. In addition, with such a ticket you can visit some museums and historical places absolutely free of charge. When choosing a ticket, it is necessary to determine the future journey. The ideal option is to purchase a travel card for a month. Families can buy specific tickets, thanks to which children under 16 can use public transport for free. There is an opportunity to purchase a local ticket that will operate within a certain area. It will be much cheaper and more convenient, if you are not going to travel to different cities of Switzerland.
Nature and parks of Switzerland
In French Switzerland, there is La Pierrez located on the stony bank of the full-flowing river Sarin. The nature here is surprisingly beautiful. Goats graze and partridges nest on the alpine slopes of the mountain. In the central part of the country, there is the Entlebuch National Park, which occupies the picturesque slopes of the Kleine-Emme valley. There are heath fields, pastures, forests, peat bogs and dense forests on its territory. The Jura National Park is located in one of the most beautiful valleys of Switzerland, the Zhu Valley. The places are characterized by delightful views of the mountain massifs, a rich forest, in which there are more than 300 species of plants, ancient marshes, and mountain pastures.
