There are not many historical attractions in Lucerne, and the dying lion seems to be one of the more famous. The sculpture of the lion is located in a small park near Lake Lucerne. In the statue, a tall lion fell to the ground in pain, with an arrow inserted deep into its back, and beside it was a shield with the Swiss national emblem. This statue was created to commemorate the thousands of Swiss mercenaries who died in the battle to defend the Tuileries Palace in Paris in 1792.

卢塞恩当地的一个比较人文的景观 我们到的时候第一站就是这个地方。虽然山上就一块石头上一个雕像看上去没什么大不同的 不过这里也算是城市精神表达的地方 公园后面还有一些树木 而池塘边上还能偶然看到有人献花的样子 很让人感动
