Montreux's spring, walking to the mountains to see Narcissus
romantic jazz capital Montreux (Montreux), is an idyllic small town, known as the "Swiss Riviera". Situated on the shores of the vast Lake Geneva, between the lakes and mountains, there are churches and small houses. The surface of the city of Xiyong is the business card of Montreux.
In the early summer of the year, in the Montreux mountains of Switzerland, the red daffodils will suddenly open on the hillsides. They quickly open on both sides of the train track and open the ski resorts that are closed. A heavy snow, dyed the mountains into white, they are like the mission of replacing the heavy snow, with vigorous white, with dazzling light, officially bid farewell to the winter.
A few centuries ago, at the turn of the spring and summer, the opening of the wild daffodils was once a prosperous age. Like people who are keen to go to the Netherlands to see tulips in May, and to see lavender in Provence in July. Before the First World War, every year in June, a large number of people would come here to see the daffodils. The Narcissus Festival is lively and extraordinary, and the grandeur is unprecedented. The symphony orchestra plays the music, the ballet opera group takes turns, and the parade floats shuttle in the city... After 1957, due to natural and artificial factors, the wild daffodils are getting less and less, the daffodils The flower festival is closed. Until recently, the daffodil festival has come back. The Swiss Daffodil Protection Association has launched different daffodil walking themes. The train company has also adjusted the route for the daffodil festival. Each hiker is required to protect the daffodils while also allowing the picking of small bundles. The narcissus is taken away. As if it was re-emerged yesterday, people took the hand of a lover, took the child, went to the depths of the mountains, came for the daffodils everywhere, for an ancient festival. I am Ann An

Looking at its majestic appearance, it is known as the most prestigious monument in Switzerland.

Whether it is the former royal territory or the later summer palace, the Chillon Castle is very important in history. Status. In the history of the Chillon Castle, we are most familiar with Byron and his book The Prisoner of Xiyong. Now, we walk into the castle again, and the prosperity of the past is still clearly displayed in front of the world. Mounting the roof, overlooking the fascinating landscape of Lake Geneva, and overlooking the French border is another attraction of the Chillon Castle.
