5. Chocolate is the most exported product
The Swiss company Valcambi produces gold bars, called CombiBar, shaped like chocolate bars. You can easily break these bars into small bits, which weigh 1 gram, and use them to pay for things.
6. The Swiss army knife is from Rome
The Swiss army knife appeared at the end of the 19th century, but actually, it has an even earlier prototype. In one of the Cambridge museums, you’ll find a universal tool which was created in Ancient Rome.
It includes a spoon, a fork, a blade, a toothpick, a spatula, and (which is the strangest thing) a special spike to get the meat out of a shrimp shell.
The only part of the Swiss army knife which is not produced in Switzerland is the corkscrew. It’s made in Japan.
