The high mountains on the eastern shore of the Mediterranean, and Switzerland located in central Europe within the Alps, and the most important characteristic of Switzerland is its passage of many political and social changes, which ultimately resulted in this neutral country.
Since the Middle Ages, many nationalities have gathered from different countries, which were later known as France, Italy, Austria, Germany, and some other minorities, and they all concentrated on the high mountains, which open to the neighboring countries thanks to its distinct geographical location, and from here the Swiss people began to appear in multiple languages. .

Switzerland went through many wars and civil disputes, and conflicts from neighboring countries, and the country began to settle after submitting to a number of internal treaties for the different groups that make up this country, and some treaties with neighboring countries as well, and the apparent neutrality of this country is the main reason behind its steadfastness and its stability.
