Verzasca Is The Most Transparent River In World

The Swiss mountains are famous all over the world, but the rivers of this country are no less remarkable. One of these rivers is located in the heart of the Swiss Alps and proudly bears the status of one of the most beautiful European rivers. The Verzasca River is also considered to be the cleanest river in the world. It is located in a valley in Switzerland's Italian-speaking region of Ticino. This mountain river is 30 km long and originates at an altitude of 2864 meters. Verzasca flows to the south, where it flows into the mountain lake Maggiore.

The Verzasca River is unique for its beauty and clarity of waters. Through its crystal clear turquoise waters, you can see beautiful colored stones scattered along the bottom. The temperature of crystal water does not exceed 7-10 degrees Celsius. The river is not deep - the depth reaches only 10 meters. But in some places, powerful underwater currents prevail, so Verzasca can be quite insidious.  [Photo Source]

All favorable bathing places have disappeared. Over the years, Verzasca has washed natural baths in the rocks. Swimming in the river is prohibited because the water is very cold. But there are always daredevils who try their best to plunge into the icy water. Here you can meet special observers who warn of dangerous currents and indicate safe places along the river. It is not surprising that such a beautiful river flows into one of the most beautiful lakes in Switzerland, which you can read about in a separate selection.

The Verzasca River in Switzerland is also a favorite spot for divers. No wonder with such visibility of water! They strive to come here and see the world from a 15-meter bottom through the prism of distortions of emerald water. The best time for this purpose is from late spring to early autumn. It is interesting that there are no living organisms in the river. Scientists suggest that the lack of flora and fauna is due to the increased acidity of the water.

Lush Mediterranean vegetation with chestnut forests and vineyards creates an incredible surrounding landscape that attracts tourists.

It is sometimes wrongly called the «Roman Bridge», since its architecture with two arches only goes back as far as the Romantic period in the seventeenth century. Source flickr
