Switzerland, officially the Swiss Confederation, is a landlocked Alpine country in Central Europe. The country, which borders Germany to the north, France to the west, Italy to the south, and Austria and Liechtenstein to the east, was historically a confederation, and has been a federation since 1848. Switzerland is a federation of relatively autonomous cantons, some of which have a history of confederacy that goes back more than 700 years, arguably putting them among the world's oldest surviving republics. With an area of 41,285 square kilometres, Switzerland is a relatively small country. Switzerland comprises three basic topographical areas namely the Swiss Alps, the Swiss plateau, and the Jura Mountains. Switzerland has four official languages namely German, French, Italian and Romansh.
Dubendorf is a suburb of Zurich in Switzerland with a population of about 22,700 in 2004. The city is situated approximately 6 miles north east of Zurich. It is bisected by the Glatt River, which runs from the Greifensee, or Lake Greifen, which lies directly to the south east. Dubendorf is the home of two research institutions that are part of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology.
The city of Dubendorf is quite small and it is easy to get around on foot. Apart the city center and the river, an interesting place to visit is the museum of military aviation, storing not just diverse military planes, but also interesting demonstration material. Dubendorf is served by both rail and bus links with the Zurich center, Winterthur and other places in the canton of Zurich. Dubendorf is an attractive city with natural beauty and historical places, while traveling in Switzerland.
