Old Town lies on both banks of the Limmat River, which flows from the lake, runs from the beginning to gradually turn north and then west in a curve. Old city limits are easily recognized by the channel Schanzengraben.

Her wholesome appearance and persist today, and the station remains an impressive architectural work. In its immediate vicinity, a monumental building that dates back over a century and it, you get below a 60 m tower, which houses the largest history museum in Switzerland, a treasure of all cantons. From here starts a long and animated commercial thoroughfare that cuts the city into two, a sort of "Champs Elysees" of Zurich's, a bright chain of luxury stores and banks, with side streets which take you either to the right, in the City - the modern , financial, big companies - are left in the cobwebs of a burg like he does not want to grow old.

Then penetrate into a labyrinth of narrow medieval streets. Engraved in a wall in its path a piece of marble with inscriptions in Latin, which includes the oldest mention of the name that Gallo-Romans founded a town they attributed to "Turicum" has evolved the present name in Zurich .

St. Peter, you only reveal them on the tower, possibly the largest in the world dial clock, with a diameter of about 9 m. However, the most sought religious building is the cathedral, who gets the most beautiful bridge crossing over Limmat River. With its huge basilica appearance, rising to the sky and the three domes, this Roman-style building, dating from the years 1100-1225, is among the most important in Switzerland. Here he began preaching in 1519, venerable prelate reformer Zwingli. Hidden in the crypt under the church choir is legendary statue of King Charles the Great, in 1470. Sculptures, murals, bold arches, stained glass by Marc Chagall Modern and Giacometti, and also creates a luxurious frame full of piety.
