Geneva, Switzerland the smallest metropolitan city in the world, possesses far more interesting stuff in contrast to its small area. Named after the Lake Geneva, this small town has a lot to offer to everyone. A must for every tourist, Geneva is located between the Lake Geneva and Mount Saleve. Many International establishments have chosen this city as their base. It is the headquarters of several renowned organizations.

Beside the concrete buildings, Geneva is also blessed with unparalleled natural beauty. World’s tallest water fountain, the Jat d’Eau is the most visited spot in the city. A number of museums, libraries and cathedrals endorse the Geneva’s glory. Each of them have given their contribution in the development of the city. University, Opera and Orchestra of Suisse Romande all have that magnetic quality to make a tourist stay here for a long time. One can reach here by plane, train or car.

Horology museum highlighting the role of clock and watch manufacturing in the city’s economy is a worth visiting place. Natural History museum represents the historical evidences of Geneva and is absolutely free for having a look. When in Genava, do not ever forget to see the stunning rose garden Park La Grange. The unfading aroma of the roses will always inspire you to return to this place over and over again.

River Rhone bisecting the city continues to flow with the same grace and is visited by every tourist. For having a stroll around the city, the Ile Rousseau proves to be a good starting point. Being at the shore of Lake Geneva gains you that elusive mental peace and replenishes you with the fresh energy. Take a walk to the famous Geneva’s oldest square and you will be more familiar with the city. Enjoying the panoramic view of the city from the top of the tower is the ultimate desire of everyone who is there for the first time.
