    Lucerne is one of the prettiest cities in the world. It is surrounded by lakes, mountains and it is also one of the safest place to live. Grocery stores are across the street from BHMS, and malls and shops are only a 10 minute walk away. The train station itself is 12 minute walk from the campus of BHMS.

    The city is called Lucerne (Luzern by the locals), it is one of the safest places for students in my opinion. Anywhere you go, people are kind, polite, and understanding. Even when you speak broken German, the locals will help you learn it. The transportation is fair and not too far from each other in time and distance, making it easy for anyone to quickly hop on. Going out in the night time is one of the best things; everything is quiet, the night lights are calming, and you see a completely different side of the busy city. You can go out for a drink with friends, go to the field and have a barbecue, or even go up the mountain and have a bonfire under the starry skies.

    Switzerland is classified as one of the safest countries in the world. Therefore, I personally feel that Lucerne is my second home after all. Easy transports links to everywhere, variety of shops that students can find, a different type of nightlife that students can enjoy during the weekend, beautiful old city and lake just near BHMS where students can spend their leisure time.
