0343 Switzerland - Zürich

Switzerland is a country famous all over the world for its chocolates, banking and watches. Its commercial capital, Zurich, is located near Lake Zurich, northeast of the capital city of Bern. It is the most densely inhabited city in Switzerland, with a population of one and a quarter million. 
The first thing that strikes anyone about Zurich is the Street Parade. This event full of fun and excitement generally takes place on the second Saturday of August. It is referred to as the demonstration of love, peace, freedom and tolerance. This parade commenced in the year 1992 with just 1000 participants. Today this event known as the ‘largest party in Europe’ has participants to the counting of thousands, belonging to varied backgrounds proceeding along the Lake Zurich and dancing to electronic music in harmony. It is considered to be the second most attended techno music parade in Europe. The parade is a meeting ground for music fans drawn to the event in tremendous numbers.
