Swiss Mercenaries

in travel •  6 months ago


🌍📍Somewhere in the Alps, Switzerland 🇨🇭

3️⃣ Fun Facts 🤪

☀️Although Switzerland is a wealthy country now, that was not always the case. Around 500 years ago it was a poor citizenry and many of the young men had to resort to working abroad as mercenaries for income.

💧A group of these men found employment guarding the Apostolic Palace and the Pope while acting as the world’s smallest sovereign army for the Vatican.

🌳Today that tradition continues with 130 Swiss guards at the ready to lay down their lives in protection of another nation.

🍄”Internationally, I love going to Switzerland. I went there many times for shooting and loved the Alps, the tranquility, cleanliness, the greenery and the warmth of the people there.”🍄
