The Cité de Calvin, home to over twenty international organizations and 250 non-governmental organizations. Distinguished institutions, such as the United Nations, the International Red Cross Committee, the European Nuclear Research Center or the World Trade Organization have elected to have their headquarters in Geneva, as it is an international political and economical hub.
The cultural diversity of the city, represented by its uncountable monuments and museums, make it one of the most touristic locations in Switzerland, be it for leisure or business. If you go to Geneva, don’t miss the chance to visit the Ariana or the natural history (the largest in Switzerland) museums. Several events also take place in the international city. The Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie and Salon International de l’Automobile, or the horse show drag over a million visitors each year.
However, what Geneva is overall, is a city where you can simply enjoy life. The lake shores, overlooked by 140 meters water jet are perfect for Summer strolls, which will lead you to the base, or the top for bravest, of the Salève. The view there is breathtaking.
