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 kilometers, 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.
Spreitenbach is a city in the district of Baden, in the district of Aargau, Switzerland. It lies southeast of the district center directly on the border with the region of Zurich. In 2005, the population of the city was 10,055. The total area of the city is 8.60 square kilometers. The city lies between Baden and Zurich on the south side of the Limmat. The settled area stretches along a plain between the Heitersberg and the waterfront. The old town center, through which the Spreitenbach stream flows, lies to the south and has preserved its original character well. Spreitenbach is a notable economic area, because of its protruding position in the west of the Zurich metropolitan area. Over 700 businesses employ about 6900 workers.
A city known for its historic myths and traditions, scenic beauty, cooperative people and luxurious hotels and cottages, Spreitenbach is one of the favorite holiday destinations for most of the vacation lovers.
