Geneva is a political center and the principal place of the Geneva canton in Switzerland. With about 191.000 people living there, Geneva is the second largest town of Switzerland after Zurich. It lays with the southwest edge of French-speaking Switzerland, on the shores of the Geneva’s lake. Geneva is a real beauty – and the epitome of international flair. In the birthplace of Calvin and Rousseau, the UN and many other international organizations have their headquarters and shape the mood of the city.
