Geneva sits on the edge of Switzerland’s largest body of water, the eponymous Lake Geneva. It’s a city where history has been made, a place where peace and trade play a central role, and somewhere that has helped knit the world’s nations together time and again with customary Swiss neutrality.
You can find antique shops, galleries, and museums with charming architecture a stone’s throw from glitzy office buildings and banks. A financial hub for centuries, these institutions form the city’s heart and run like clockwork, monuments to the spirit of hard work and ambition that animates this place.
Geneva is home to the headquarters of the World Health Organization, the World Trade Organization, and the Red Cross. Not far from the city is the world-famous CERN, the location of the Large Hadron Collider, and the biggest physics laboratory in the world. 
Diplomacy, sophistication, and level-headed pragmatism form the backbone of this city, values which lie at the core of Swiss culture. Its location in the heart of Europe has given Geneva a rich history of diversity, making it a multi-layered tapestry of languages, cultures, and values. This is reflected in the cuisine here, which has a little of something for everyone. Traditional Swiss cuisine nestles alongside some of the best Italian and French food in the world.
In Geneva, there is no prescribed way to spend a day. Take a walk by the lakeside and watch the Jet d’Eau with its formidable stream of water coursing relentlessly into the air. Alternatively, visit the Place des Nations with its giant three-legged chair, a monument that stands in defiance of violence and war. Or simply relax in a cafe with an Espresso and drink in the unique atmosphere of this city, the home of international peace.
