Zurich Back Then
The history of Zurich can be traced back to around 15BC when it was a part of the Roman Empire. The name ‘Zurich’ was officially recorded in AD929 and it was finally in 1218 when Zurich became a free town, much before the Swiss Confederation came into being (1291). Zurich became a part of the Swiss Confederation in 1351 and it was 1648 that the latter became independent and had a Constitution to call its own (in 1848). The city rose to fame in the 19th century when it became the cornerstone of the Swiss economy. The development of infrastructure and the transport system, along with the est
