SOLOTHURN


This is one of the cities I visited in Switzerland...one of the finest baroque town there......its almost 2 hours train journey from Zurich....after getting down we just walked to the down town and all. At a first glance it looks like a small , peaceful, beautiful place..not much crowds or any noise there...Many people going on bikes..I loved specially the bikes of young mothers who had a small carriage attached to it for their toddlers....such a beautiful, convenient and Eco friendly way of travelling...saw old people sitting leisurely in the parks, to me it looked like a place for settlement after retirement..calm and quite and full of nature.There is nothing special to see..just a beautiful town with Italian grandeur.

Beautiful pic! Looks so serene :)
I always felt ppl in Switzerland are never in a hurry for any damn thing. For them, tomorrow is just another day and to think all the world's money is stored in their banks :D

Btw, you should visit Monaco someday (if you haven't that is) - it has exactly the same lifestyle and pace.
