About Switzerland

Switzerland is a landlocked mountainous country in South Central Europe and has a population of 8.5 million people, capital city is Bern, and largest city is Zurich.
Geographically the country is divided between the Alpine region of the Swiss Alps in south, the Swiss Plateau with its rolling hills, plains, and large lakes, and the mountainous Jura in northwest.
The country is a famous tourist destination for its ski resorts and hiking trails. Banking and finance are key industries, and Swiss watches and chocolate are world renowned.

Switzerland welcomes an ever-increasing number of medical tourists each year, many of which travel for Ophthalmology procedures. Switzerland keeps increasing medical tourism numbers despite having some of the highest prices in the world. “The continued high prices in Switzerland, when compared to neighboring European countries, are off putting especially for European tourists who see Switzerland as a high price country. But tourists coming from China, Asia and Middle East are far more concerned about quality.
