COUNTRY IN FOCUS

SWITZERLAND


Switzerland is a landlocked country in central Europe & is surrounded by Germany on the north, by Liechtenstein and Austria on the east, by Italy on the southeast and south and by France on the west and northwest. Switzerland's capital city, Bern, is located in the western part of the country. Switzerland is divided into three natural topographical regions: (1) the Jura Mountains in the northwest, rising between Switzerland and eastern France; (2) the Alps in the south, covering three-fifths of the country's total area; and (3) the central Swiss plateau, or Mittelland, consisting of fertile plains and rolling hills that run between the Jura and the Alps.

GERMANY

 

This country of broad variations in its geography and its culture is one that has endured a long and troubled history, often as the battlefield for the great conflicts which have embroiled the European continent. It was not until the mid-19th century that what is now Germany became a federation; until that time, it had been a conglomeration of independent states. The empire was formed in 1871 after Prussia's victory over France, and a period of prosperity and expansion began. Bowed by the outcome of the First World War and the subsequent economic and political chaos, Germany rose again as the Third Reich, but was finally defeated in 1945 by Allied powers and divided after the war. In 1990, after a peaceful and democratic revolution by its people, East Germany abolished the restrictive communist government and was reunited with West Germany (Wiedervereinigung). As a democratic republic, Germany has rebuilt itself into an important and influential state.
