  • The Alps! One of the most beautiful regions in the world! I love Switzerland my home country!

    The Alps and the Alpine towns are beautiful. I didn’t know about the existence of the town with the canals. Would like to see it one day, so interesting. The novel by Thomas Mann was not exactly about the Alps, the mountain was used as an allegory of the western decadence: you go to a sanatorium there because you are ill, but instead of recovering you become still worse.
