Geneva is one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the world. The city has over 40 museums, and many pubs, cafes, and nightclubs. The Art and History Museum and the Natural History Museum are a must-visit for all those who wish to know about the history and culture of Geneva. The Red Cross Museum offers visitors a glimpse into the various humanitarian crises that have overshadowed the world from time to time and the stellar role played by the organization in alleviating the suffering of people.
Geneva is also famous for its breathtaking beauty. Situated on the shores of Lake Geneva, Geneva is a tourist paradise for thousands of people from around the world. The Flower Clock is a timekeeper made of real flowers, located inside a lush landscaped garden. Another Geneva tourist attraction is the Jet d’Eau, the 140-meter high fountain in Lake Geneva that is visible from most parts of the city.
Other quirky (and traditional) customs add to the quaint flavor of Geneva, Switzerland. One of them is the official proclamation issued to announce the arrival of spring when a particular chestnut tree gets blooms on it. This custom has been followed since 1818.
