Switzerland, officially the Swiss Confederation, is a landlocked Alpine country in Central Europe. It had been a federation, since 1848, 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. Switzerland comprises three basic topographical areas namely the Swiss Alps, the Swiss plateau, and the Jura Mountains. Switzerland has four official languages, German in the north and centre, French to the west, Italian in the south and Romansh in the southeast. Switzerland has a strong economy in finance and banking, and a long and strong tradition of political and military neutrality.
Kusnacht is a city near Zurich, Switzerland. It is located on the north-east bank, also known as Goldkuste, of the lake of Zurich and had a population of about 12,700 residents living within an area of 12.35 square kilometers, as of 2003. The local dialect is called Zuridutsch. It is not to be confused with Kussnacht, am Rigi, on Lake Lucerne.
During Roman times, a mansion was located on the commons. It was called fundus Cossiniacus which is probably the origin of the name of Kusnacht. In the 7th century the name was recorded as Chussenacho. After 1531, Kusnacht was governed by Zurich and like all other places along the lake of Zurich, Kusnacht started to become a suburb of Zurich with the development of the railway link in 1896.
