Swiss Culture

Switzerland has a rich cultural heritage representing the diversity of a country where four languages are spoken and where traditional farmers live only some miles away from the business centres in the cities. Find here pictures from some of these traditions:

The traditonal processions in Mendrisio (in the italian speaking part of Switzerland) during the holy week

The Carnival of Lucerne, three days of pure power and energy in a medieval city

Chienbaese, where giant fires are carried through the city of Liestal in order to frighten away the winter
