The Republic and Canton of the Jura, also known as the canton of Jura or canton Jura, is the newest (founded in 1979) of the 26 Swiss cantons, located in the northwestern part of Switzerland. The capital is Delémont
On creation, the canton adopted the title Republic and canton of the Jura. Other cantons in Switzerlandusing the title "Republic and Canton" are Ticino, the canton of Geneva, and the canton of Neuchâtel. In each case, the title refers to the autonomy of the canton and its nominal sovereignty within the Swiss Confederation.
Since 1994, the question of the Jura region has again been controversial. In 2004, a federal commission proposed that the French-speaking southern Jura be reunited with the canton of Jura, as the language question now seems to be more important than the denominational one. A possible solution would be to create two half-cantons, as reunification with the creation of only a single canton would mean a complete restructuring of the Jura's current political system, with the cantonal capital being transferred from Delémont to Moutier.
On 18 June, 2017, the town of Moutier voted to quit Bern and join the canton of Jura. On 17 September, 2017, the nearby municipalities of Belprahon and Sorvilier conversely voted to remain in the canton of Bern. The vote in Moutier has since been declared invalid.
Agriculture is important in canton Jura. Cattlebreeding is significant, but there is also horse breeding (the Franches-Montagnes is the last Swiss horse race). The main industries are watches, textilesand tobacco. There is a growing number of small and middle-sized businesses. In 2001, there were 3,578 people who worked in the primary economic sector. 14,109 people were employed in the secondary sector and 16,513 people were employed in the tertiary sector. 🇨🇭🇨🇭🇨🇭

Next stop : Heaven ! "When we arrived at the next point in Les Montuires (1825m), there is a pleasant area with a cafe and toilets on the way to the panoramic train. This was my favourite part of the journey and Jude loved it too (mainly I suspect, because it was red). Again, we had to reorganize ourselves a bit to get the children and baby carriers in the train seats but that done, we set off. It was a really charming experience as the train chugged through the mountain path, tooted as we entered tunnels and enabled us incredible access to the most spectacular views. "
