Holiday in Switzerlandi4j@

Montreux, Lac Leman

ship

From Murren, we went to Montreux by train. We arrived there too early to check-in the hotel. It was fine day and I decided to go to Chateau de Chillon by ship.

Lac Leman It looks like the old castle on the sea water, doesn't it?
When I arrived at the top floor and looked out of the window, I could see the sea just below the window and I felt like I was on the ship. My guide book says that it was thirteenth century when it was finished to the current style. It was built complicatedly multistory and every floor was connected by the narrow and steep stairs.
While I was walking every floor, I sweated. It was a good exercise.

The walkway along the lake was so beautiful that I walked to the hotel looking at the lake and lots of flowers.
Casino On the street near the hotel was that Casino that's very famous for it's World Jazz Festival. It was the previous day of its opening. Casino
I met people who were in interesting folk costume. They were the people who were holding a big event. I could also enjoy their music.

I was so excited to see many famous jazz players' names and photos on the posters and the signs.
The hotel was located at the main street "Gran Pue" and looking on the lake.
The daytime was so long when I was traveling there.


Lac Leman

The sunset was later than nine o'clock at night and it was almost ten o'clock when it got dark.
I enjoyed the beautiful sunset from the window of the room.
