Geneva is a very elegant holiday destination. It actually is the host of the second ONU siege and as well to other over 200 governmental and non – governmental organizations, hundreds of multinational companies but as well the target of various sheiks who come to spend their money in the haute couture shops here.
This is the most eastern canton of Switzerland. Here you can find the biggest number of 4 and 5 stars hotels and as well the Michelin stars for the restaurants are to be found at each corner of the street. The main attraction from this city is the siege of ONU, the second as size after the one from New York. Anyhow, the tradition here is older than the one from the United States. It can be visited by the tourists starting 10AM and you will have to have your passport on you in order to get in.
After this you can stroll on the shore of the Geneva Lake and see the tallest fountain in the world – Jet d’Eau. The water gets to a height of 140 meters and a speed of 200 kilometers per hour. The main cathedral of this city is beautiful and it is called Saint Pierre. This is famous like the place where John Calvin preached. It is quiet dull inside as it is of Protestant Communion, but climbing its 147 inside stairs, will offer you a beautiful view of the city.
The old part of the city is the most expensive one as well. Anyhow, once in a lifetime, you deserve to eat at one of its finest restaurants – “Les Armures”.
