Switzerland became a nation-state in 1291. The democratic principles in effect at the time still form the base of political life today. German was the official language of the 3 original cantons (federal states). Nowadays, in addition to German, 18% of the population speak French, 10% speak Italian and 1% Rumansch (a language derived from Latin). Switzerland is an enchanting country with magnificent mountains, alpine pastures, peaceful lakes and medieval towns and cities.
