Geneva is the smallest metropolis in the world

Geneva is the smallest metropolis in the world

Geneva is considered the second largest city in Switzerland and also the smallest metropolis in the world, home to 200,000 people. It should be noted that 40% of the city's residents are foreigners. In fact, Geneva is a very vibrant and cosmopolitan city, symbolized by the Jet d'Eau fountain. Visiting this beautiful city, you can see here many museums, libraries, and also collections.

The cultural center of the city is located in the area of ​​New Square, where most of the museums and theaters are concentrated, including the Music Conservatory, the Bolshoi Theater, and the Museum of Swiss Watches. During the summer period of stay in Geneva, you can get to a concert held in any of the theaters, and completely free of charge.

Geneva, like any other city, is proud of its sights and architecture. Once in this wonderful city, it is worth looking at the Flower Clock.

From early spring, everything here is fragrant and blooming. If you visit the English Garden, located at the Promenade du Lac, you will surely notice a huge clock, five meters long, made of 6500 flowers. I must say that they show the exact time. It will be interesting for tourists to pay attention to the broken chair, towering by the driveway towards the UN building. This monument reminds us that any aggression directed against UN workers can end badly, to put it mildly. The broken chair calls for peace and diplomatic relations.

The Geneva fountain looks incredibly beautiful, which is one of the largest in the world. As you know, Geneva is located on the shores of Lake Geneva, which is the second largest in Europe. Near the lake there are parks with boulevards, where rose bushes dazzle. For those with a sweet tooth, there is a great opportunity to enjoy real chocolate in Geneva. 

Local chocolate is very popular not only among the residents of Geneva itself, but also among the very famous guests. Chocolatier du Rhone confectionery offers pure chocolate without chemical additives. Tourists can also visit restaurants and cafes that are distinguished by their cleanliness, comfort and delicious food. Once in Geneva, you will definitely want to come back here more than once.
