The old part of the city, the heart of Geneva, where the commercial and financial areas are located, prevails on the left bank. Despite being dominated by St. Peter's Cathedral, the very center of the old part of the city is called Place du Bourg-de-Four, the oldest square in the city. Pier, boardwalks off the lake, countless parks, lively side streets in the historic center and elegant shops are very inviting for a stroll.

Culturally, this city in the far east of Switzerland has a lot to offer. International artists perform at the Grand Théâtre and the Geneva Opera House, and visitors to the city can enjoy an extremely diverse range of museums, such as the 'Musée international de l'horlogerie' (International Watchmaking Museum), aimed at watches, with a collection of clocks with precious stones and musical clocks

Between the Alps and vineyards, the United Nations peace capital is located on the largest lake in southern Europe. The city is the birthplace of the luxury watch industry and offers stunning views. Boat trips on Lake Geneva - in specific boats for sightseeing, visitors can marvel at the unique landscape of castles and magnificent residences, set against the wonderful landscape and mountainous panoramas.
