Geneva, the capital of the Republic and Canton of Geneva, is a gorgeous and special city. Located where the Rhône exits Lake Geneva, it is unparalleled in its beauty. That being said, it is not just known for its beauty; Geneva is also a global city, financial centre and worldwide centre for diplomacy, making it incredibly important for ethical matters.


What makes Geneva so special?

It cannot be denied that Geneva is a historical city, with evidence of settlements there as far back as the Palaeolithic Period. Even its name is ancient, as Genava (the old spelling of Geneva) dates back to the pre-Celtic Ligurian peoples of the 1st millennium BC. While this city’s history is evidently expansive, the one thing that Geneva is really known for is its history of watchmaking. This has been a huge part of the city’s heritage since the mid-16th century when the city was ruled by the protestant John Calvin. It is a perfect place to visit if you fancy delving deeper into this remarkable story.

Location and beauty

Due to its unique location on Lake Geneva, it cannot be doubted that Geneva is an incredibly beautiful city. It is also an incredibly nature-filled city, with lots of parks to enjoy. From Le Jardin Anglais with its clock theme to the Jet d’Eau, a gigantic fountain in Lake Geneva, there are many natural sights to behold.

If you are willing to travel a little further afield, Geneva is a great base for exploring the Alps. In fact, you can even see Mont Blanc and the Alps from the city centre. If you are a ski-lover, it is an ideal place to visit, as Chamonix is only an hour’s drive away.

A human-sized city

One of Geneva’s most remarkable features is its quality of life for both residents and visitors alike. Being situated in a relatively small geographical area, you can walk practically everywhere in Geneva, making it perfect for those who love ambling.
