The Heart Of Switzerland - Lucerne
There are just so many things that we are impressed with Lucerne - the turquoise water, the swans, the chapel bridge, and the unique look of the steeples. If you are looking for a place to relax and to be mind-blown by picturesque sceneries, Lucerne is in your bucket lists!
The pristine lake
The iconic Chapel Bridge
The Chapel Bridge (Kapellbrücke) stretching out and linking two towns across the Reuss river caught our attention from far. It is the main tourist attraction in Lucerne and it is by far the oldest surviving wooden bridge in Switzerland! The talllest tower standing proud in the middle of the bridge is Wasserturm, which was used as prison and torture chamber in the oldern days.
The memorial lion
The Lion Monument, which is carved into the side of a cliff represents the Swiss mercenaries who were executed during the French revolution. As we looked closer we spotted the lion was actually wounded and sleeping with his weapons and shields. The pool of water adds on reflections for the monument which makes it very magnificient to look at. This photo does not justify how huge the monument is when seen with real eyes.
