The national costume festival is a real Swiss celebration.
The festival took place from June 4-6, 2010 in Schwyz, in central Switzerland, transforming the small town into a riot of colour. Among those participating was Swiss President Doris Leuthard (picture 1). There are more than 400 different types of traditional dress for men and women in the country. (Images: Urs Flüeler, Keystone)
