Zurich panorama
Zurich is the largest city in Switzerland and one of the world's leading financial centers. Zurich is often listed as one of the most pleasant places to live and one of the wealthiest cities in Europe.

The city itself was founded by the Romans in 15 BC, under the name Turicum. However, much evidence has been found showing that the area was settled over 6,400 years ago.

Zurich in People's Lives

Isabel Lucas: My family moved here for a year when I was six years old, in 1991. My mother, who is Swiss, showed me around this city and the country.

John Calvin: I traveled here in 1538, after being expelled by the city council in Geneva over a religious dispute. In this city, I sought refuge and sympathy, and was accompanied by my fellow pastor at the church I had been presiding over. Though the council here blamed me for aggravating the people of Geneva, they sent requests to that city requesting that my co-pastor and I be reinstated as ministers and allowed to return to our church. This was adamantly refused, and we moved on to Basel.

Joseph Conrad: I traveled here in 1891, to recover from ill health at a Swiss spa. I suffered from gout, bouts of malaria, and pains in my right arm and had recently been released from a British hospital.

Magnus Carlsen: I traveled here in February of 2014, to compete in the Zurich Chess Challenge, which I won.

Orlando Bloom: While on a skiing trip here when I was 9 years old, in 1986, I had an accident. I had to wear a cast for an entire year - which I was not happy about.
