142. The Swiss Guard - History
with the history of these troops who take an oath of loyalty to the Pope. played such an important role in the history of European politics.
The "Helvetians": country, where, because of the precarious economic conditions of the times, there was much poverty. There was no choice but to emigrate and one of the most profitable jobs was that of a mercenary soldier abroad. The Swiss Mercenaries: The Swiss Mercenaries and France: The alliance with France was the most important and it began with Charles VII in 1453, and was later renewed in 1474 by Louis XI, who had seen for himself near Basle how 1,500 Swiss soldiers had resisted against twenty times as many men. Louis XI hired some of the Confederate soldiers as instructors for the French army and the King of Spain did the same. When, at the end of the 15th century, with Charles VIII the Italian Wars began, the Swiss were described by the Italian historian, Guicciardini, as "the nerve and the hope of an army". In 1495 the life of the King of France was saved thanks to the immovable firmness of his Swiss foot-soldiers. The foreign service of the Confederates was better regulated under the 1521 alliance between France and the Cantons. With it the Swiss agreed to provide from six to sixteen thousand men for the King and in return the Cantons would benefit from the protection of the most powerful European prince. They became permanent allies and auxiliaries, but the Cantons were still the true sovereigns of the troops and reserved to themselves the right to withdraw them. These armed corps were completely independent, with their own regulations, their own judges and their own flags. The orders were given in their own language, German, by Swiss officers and they

Narrow Gauge Guide switzerland
Information about Swiss narrow gauge railways Introduction Railway News Railway companies Other links ... Deutsche Sprache What's
Intro Switzerland's rail network is one of the world's most densely concentrated rail systems. Due to the extremely mountainous terrain, railway engineers opted for the more economical narrow gauge construction; the distance between the rails is less than the standard 1435 mm. Some of these railways (such as the BLM) are simply links between two villages, while others handle the traffic of an entire canton (RhB.) Some, such as the JB were designed as tourist carriers, while others are "international", crossing into other nations (MC.) Because of this large variety of design and purpose, detailed descriptions of many of them will be found on this website. To contact the authors please have a look at our imprint Railway

    Driving in Switzerland
    Switzerland has a lot to offer the motorist; quiet, well-maintained roads and a decent autoroute network, coupled with dramatic scenery. There are 4 official languages in Switzerland, so be prepared for the signage to switch from one language to the other as you drive around the country.
    Autoroutes, Autobahns (Motorways, Freeways)
    Swiss autoroutes are all tolled. However, unlike France where you pay on demand for the length of your journey, in Switzerland it is necessary to purchase an annual 'vignette'. This sticker, which must be fixed to the inside of your windscreen, entitles you to drive on the autoroutes for 1 year (Jan-Dec). At the time of writing it cost SF40. Failure to display the vignette when driving on an autoroute will land you a SF100 fine as well as the cost of the vignette. You can buy them in advance of your journey from Swiss tourist offices, as you enter the country at border posts and inside Switzerland from post offices and some garages. However, this law is not made very clear to the visitor and border guards (especially in remote areas) will not remind you of the requirement. Obviously, if you are entering the country by autoroute, it is more likely that you will be stopped at the border and sold a vignette. Although it is possible to get around Switzerland without using autoroutes, it will certainly speed up journey times and you don't want to miss the fantastic autoroute drive from Montreux to Lausanne - breath-taking scenery with the Jura on one side and Lake Geneva on the other.

    Beginning Athens Roma Venice Firenze ... Lucerne Zurich
    Allo you, welcome to this digital transcript of a journal kept (sometimes assiduously, occasionally not) on a trip made in lovely May this year (2002) by me and friend J to lands magical, redolent with perfumed myth and modern pong. Errors (except where they would threaten the original meaning overly) are preserved and staccato style retained to set in marble forever the harried, breathless, wide-eyed wonder-ness of this trip made on the cusp of our turning 21.
    Please read everything keeping in mind that most of the time we were in a state of amazement and/ or amused survey of the absurdities of life, or 42, or everything. Nasty comments (there aren't any, actually) are meant much more benignly than they look on a coldly flickering screen. Click here for photographs.
