However, when a referendum was put to the people on joining the European Union, the people took the decision not to join the EU. Switzerland is a country of many languages with French, German and Italian and Romansh all being national language although German is the most common language with approximately 60% of people speaking it,
The major cities of Switzerland are, by population: Zurich, Geneva, Basel, Berne, Lausanne and Lucerne. The country itself is home to some of the most splendid mountains in Europe. Perhaps the most famous mountain range is the Alps with the highest peak of the Swiss Alps being Dufourspitze at just over 4,600 metres. However one of the most famous peaks is the Matterhorn, 4,478 metres, which has much literary and film comment. The Jura Mountains are also partly in Switzerland along the northwestern border with France.
With so many mountains it is hardly surprising then that there are also many plunging valleys to and also the source for many rivers such as the Rhine and the Rhone. There are also plenty of lakes with the most famous being Lake Geneva and Lake Zurich.
