I would rather call it a city of canals which truly enhance the charm of the place. This city in the heart of Switzerland, holds Gletschergarten Museum in it's heart. History buffs would love the place. An important monument called The Lion Monument stands close to the Museum. Löwendenkmal or the Lion of Lucerne is a dying lion carved out of rock as a memorial for soldiers from Switzerland who served French King Louis XVI during the French Revolution.
