Departure in the morning. After lunch we cross the border.
"So, I am already in Switzerland, in the country of picturesque nature, in the land of freedom and well being!" – as Karamzin said, and we will also be convinced of it, having passed across the historic center of Basel (excursion with our brilliant guide – only 8€).
And a little later we will be in Bern – the capital of the country. Ah, and how not to recollect professor Pleischner from the novel by Yulian Semyonov and the eponymous movie of Soviet period "Seventeen moments of spring" on these fantastically beautiful streets. These magnificent arcades, roofs of the houses covered with a red tile, the majestic squares, unusually high bridges, a terrace of the Federal Palace with a beautiful view of mountains... I doubt if there are any capitals in the world which could apply for comparison with this city?... Yeah!. Johann Goethe was right: "Bern is the best city from all which I happened to see".
We agreed implicitly and... we go to the hotel to rest.
In the morning, having a good rest, we are captured by the walk along the Veve Embankment with monuments to Chaplin and Eminescu, admire the embankment of Montreux with monuments to Nabokov and Mercury...
Then our bus rushes along the Swiss Riviera.
VA. Zhukovsky considered that it is "one of the first panoramas in Europe. In the most magnificent ballet there are no such panoramas like this coast of Lake Geneva".
In 2,5 hours we are already on the way to Geneva. We head to "the city of luxury" (according to A. Dumas). Walking along the embankment, we admire the enormous fountain disappearing highly in heaven and also we go along the streets seeing Russo, Byron, Karamzin, Nabokov... Geneva shocks, Charles de Talleyrand said: "It is the sixth part of the world".
Again to hotel to rest.
For those who wants to enjoy further pastime in Bern: to wander about the ancient small streets, to sit in the cozy cafes and restaurants or to choose a couple of new legendary Swiss watch – free time.
Especially curious are invited to an excursion around the Bern Uplands, through the Thun Lake to the valley of falls (excursion is only 15€): Truemmelbachfall – the huge falls "living" in the rock – worthies the separate poem ( the entrance ticket is 11€, visiting of it depends on the weather conditions).
Interlaken will please us not only by picturesque views, but also will pleasantly surprise us by the prices for watches.
We head for Lucerne, the city where any picture looks like a post card, and, according to Nabokov, here "the dream and reality merge in love".
After the excursion and one-hour trip we get to the uncrowned capital of Switzerland – Zurich where on magnificent streets, and especially on Bahnhofstrasse, the ideas which are especially concerning financial means flies. In 2 hours of an excursion and "a throat of free time" we put the end in the history of our staying in this country. Really, is it time to go home? It is quite good to stay here forever... As A. Konchalovsky said: "Do you want to live like in Switzerland – live in Switzerland!" We want! It is worth listening to him. If our finance allows us, of course.
With a sigh of a regret we go home...
