Switzerland is good, but it's a country for very few persons.

It's a small country with a small population and limited opportunities.

The landscape is nice but not as stunning as other parts of Europe. People are very reserved and only moderately friendly. It has its benefits, it's safe, neutral and not in the EU but not the best country out there.
Could you expand more on that... What other countries are you talking about?

I think they might be referring to France, Italy, Germany, Poland, Russia or the like if we are looking at nature. All of those countries have places with prominent peaks.

Sorry but Poland is nothing compared to Switzerland when it comes to scenery. Germany falls short too. Russia, i have only been to Moscow and St. Petersburg so i can't comment.

What problems would you put ahead?

I agree about Switzerland. I don't think people really realise how hideously expensive the country is.

Perhaps not, I was just using mountains as an example, but yeah that is a pretty vague point.
