ABSTRACT
The article reports on the parliamentary session in Switzerland which was held at a mountain village in Flims. On-going renovations on the parliament building and a tribute to the fourth Swiss national language, Romansh, are among the reasons why the session was held outside Bern, capital of the country. Romansh translation of the debates in the session will also be done.
