Or what to see and do in the capital of “the canton of millionaires”.
Schwyz, the capital of the canton with the same name, one of the three oldest founders of the Swiss Confederation, is a mini world inside Switzerland: a very-very old, historically crucial and with true Swiss character and traditions. It’s no exaggeration that it may be considered as the world – with breathtaking nature adorned by the mountains of Hochstuckli, Kleiner Mythen, Grosser Mythen, Rotenflue and Furggelenstock and the river Muota that flows out of these mountains and through the municipality on its way to Lake Lucerne, it’s just so full and vast, despite its rather modest area, so diverse, “other-dimensional” and off the beaten track, while simultaneously being painstakingly traditional and predictable in a good sense; so enchanting, luring and mesmerizing, that millions of tourists that have set a foot there would take a chance to visit it again in a blink of an eye.
