In the North of Switzerland is the ancient city of Zurich. The population is almost 430 thousand inhabitants, which makes Zurich the largest city in the country. In ancient times, Celtic and Germanic tribes lived here, then the Romans came here and built a customs post. In 1230, it was already a large settlement with its own wall. Later, Zurich became the center of the reformation, where the Christian philosopher and humanist Ulrich Zwingli worked.

The second world war ended unsuccessfully for Zurich – the us air force mistakenly dropped tons of conventional and incendiary bombs on the city. The industry was in decline. Over time, Zurich was rebuilt, insurance companies, banks came to the fore, and the service sector developed. In the 1950s, more and more rural residents began to move here in search of new housing and work. In the pictures, you can see what this beautiful city looked like back then.
