The country is located among the Swiss Alps which provides for a wide range of geographical features including mountains, forests, wide open pastures, and large lakes. Although located in the mountains of the Swiss Alps, Switzerland offers a mild climate. The culture in Switzerland is very diverse as it is located between many different European countries making it a great place to study abroad.
