Fribourg (French pronunciation: ​[fʁibuʁ]; Arpitan: Fribôrg or Friboua, pronounced [fʁibwa] (listen)) or Freiburg (also called Freiburg im Üechtland for disambiguation from Freiburg im Breisgau; pronounced [ˈfraɪbʊrɡ ɪm ˈyəxtland]; Swiss German pronunciation: [ˈfrib̥ʊrɡ̊]; Italian: Friborgo or Friburgo; Romansh: Friburg) is the capital of the Swiss canton of Fribourg and the district La Sarine. It is located on both sides of the river Saane/Sarine, on the Swiss Plateau, and is a major economic, administrative and educational center on the cultural border between German and French Switzerland (Romandy). Its Old City, one of the best-maintained in Switzerland, sits on a small rocky hill above the valley of the Sarine.
