Thanks

Yes it's new. There were several Subways in Switzerland some years ago but they closed due to missmanagement. Now subway wants to open new restaurants again and has the target to have more restaurants in Switzerland than Mc Donalds...

The first of the new ones is this one at the S-Bahnstation Selnau. More to come, yami

@Letzprinz: This is the NZZ-Building at Bellevue next to the opera house...

Really nice pictures with unusual views of Zurich.

These riots give opportunity to take interesting pictures, but I'm not proud of it!
I don't understand these annual scenes. But it seams that it is also a part of Zurich!

It's the current kind of adventure tourism. Some 20 years ago, drug addicts came from all over Europe to Zurich, now the rioters. Taking advantage of the liberal nature of the city. I hope they will not contribute towards a shift of mindset in the population towards more conservativeness, as it has happened in the Netherlands.

I've liked them all, specially "Tramways near mainstation". It seems that Zurique has big a big metropolis touch! Thanks!!!
