Switzerland: Most valuable peace

Switzerland is known for many things but, primarily, probably, for its banks and neutrality, with chocolate and knifes following closely. The country has four national languages and hosts many international organizations, including Red Cross, WTO, WHO and FIFA. Actually, it was also a home to Tim Berners-Lee's famous experiment which resulted in the invention of the World Wide Web so as you browse the Web and read this page, you may say a few good words to this state. It is not a memeber of the EU but this fact is more regrettable for the EU rather than the Swiss as Switzerland is boasting a better quality of life than the EU average and is regularly topping charts on this and similar subjects. But it's not only interesting for a comfortable living as its beautiful lakes and stunning mountains make it one of the most popular tourist destinations in Europe.
