Capital of Peace

Geneva brings the world to one small city with a huge expat population and the highest number of international organizations in any one city.
Museum-lovers will appreciate International Red Cross and Red Crescent Museum and Fondation Pierre Gianadda.

There's still lots to do: explore the activities along Lake Geneva, ponder the design of The Geneva Water Fountain, enjoy the sand and surf at Plage de Port-Choiseul, and appreciate the history behind Reformation Wall (Mur de la Reformation).
