PostSubject: Switzerland   Sun 3 Dec - 23:04

Hello my dear friends of all over the world!

I wish to share you a little about Switzerland. Small country but I'm proud of it!

Even if Switzerland is in the middle of Europe, it's a "rebel country"! We're not in the Europe Union. Our dear neigbours are : France, Germany, Austria, Italy and Lichtenstein.

We are well known for our good chocolate, cheese, watches and knifes.

There is four languages spoken in Switzerland (official) Most of Swiss speak Swiss! ha! well, here we say "swiss-german". when somebody greets you in swiss, it's never the same. That because every canton have their own dialect, even if all understand each other. Where I live, canton of Bern, you will hear: Grüetzi, wie geitz?
Than people speak french, and that mostly on the west side of switzerland. "Bonjour, comment ça va" is "good day, how are you". And on the south, close to Italy, there is the canton of Tessin. Tessin people speak italien. Well, yes. I prefer to say they speak "tessinish" coz there is differences.
At the east side, near Austria, people speak in Romanch. I know only one single word in that language, and it's "Allegra!" that means "hello" or "good day". It seems like a happy language!

Switzerland is splitted in Cantons, like USA in States and Canada in Provinces. The capital is Bern.

There is a lot of big mountains, The Alps, that we share with France, Italy and Austria.
I love to live in Switzerland. It's a peaceful country with beautiful pictures. I like to go for long walks in the forest. You won't meet a lot of wolf, or bear, because they got all killed years ago. Now they are protected animals and the governement is trying to re-introduce those dissapeared animals in the nationals parks. I wish them good luck.

Now I could say way more, but I have friends that will have a pleasure to complete the story!

Be blessed people of God!

Some photos I took in the French Swiss part, called "Wavre", close to Neuchâtel:







The hills you can see in the background are the Alpes, quoted by Noémie above.

PostSubject: Right !   Sun 4 Feb - 2:55

Tu as raison Noël c'est un beau pays !
J'espère que j'aurais la chance de le visiter un de ses jours....
Au fait y a-il des conventions de frontières entre l'Europe et la Suisse ? C'est-à-dire est-ce qu'un ressortissant de l'union européenne peut aller en Suisse sans visa ?

You're right Noël it's a beautifull country !
I hope that I'll have the chance to visit it one day ...
By the way is there any frontier's convention between the Europe and Swiss ? That's mean a european national could he go to Swiss without a visa ?

I think all European can enter Switzerland without visa (it is so for French people). At least with North European coutries. There is some limitations in milk; chocolate; and others goods you have to take care at the custom control.

After verification:

With the Union European nationality you don't need visa, only your ID as long as it still good. For other nationality the visa is not require for a stay less than 3 month, but you have to have a passport.
