Right in the middle of Europe, but not part of the European Union, Switzerland is a mix of chocolate box prettiness and cutting edge design, Latin joie de vivre and Germanic precision.

The Montreux Jazz Festival in July brings world-famous acts to perform by the lakeside and is a high point in the busy cultural calendar.
