Climate in Switzerland and weather forecast - best seasons for visit
The climate of Switzerland is moderately continental. The peculiarity of the country is its landscape. More than 62 percent of the territory is occupied by mountains, so in some parts of Switzerland winter does not end even in summer. The climatic characteristics of the territory directly depend on its height above sea level. The mountains are a natural barrier to the cold Arctic air masses. The country is characterized by cold winters in mountainous areas, and hot summers in plains. Every year, a lot of precipitation falls in Switzerland. Almost throughout the whole territory, the average temperature in winter is about 1 degree below zero, and in summer, the temperature rises up to 25 degrees Celsius. At night, the temperature can drop to +10C. In the south of the country, the weather remains unchanged at any time of the year. The largest amount of precipitation a year falls in the southern part of Switzerland.
Atmosphere of Switzerland: politics
A council is being formed on the basis of the five largest parties. At the same time, ministers are prohibited from further propaganda of political concepts of their own party. All of them should act exclusively for the benefit of Switzerland, putting this goal above party principles and posts. Each year, one of the seven members of the Federal Council holds the post of president of the country. According to the current Constitution of Switzerland, all seven Ministers of the Federal Council are absolutely equal and must make decisions on the basis of collegial meetings. In this case, the position of the President is only a formality. There are 7 federal ministries in the country, and the activities of each minister are oriented towards the relevant ministry. Abroad, every minister has the right to represent the whole country independently.
