Canton of St. Gallen
Defined by Napoleon Bonaparte in 1803, the Canton of St. Gallen connects Switzerland to Germany, Austria, and Liechtenstein at its borders. The region serves as a hub for culture and education in Europe, and is home to two World Heritage Sites: the Abbey of St. Gall, with its Baroque cathedral and vast library, and the thrust fault formation in the Alps. The university puts special emphasis on economic science, which complements the canton's prevalent industries of optical goods, pyrotechnics, chemicals, and pharmaceuticals. Stroll through the Old Town of the regional capital, St. Gallen, browse the handsome boutiques, or pull up a chair at a quaint cafe. Tourist attractions include thermal spas, water parks, museums, and winter sports facilities aplenty.
