Facts about Geneva

Geneva is the second largest city in Switzerland behind Zurich and the most international city in Europe. It is the capital of the Swiss Canton of Geneva located in the south-westernmost corner of Switzerland, along the banks of Europe's largest lake, Lake Geneva (Lac Léman), at the mouth of the Rhone River and is bordered by the Jura Mountains to the west and the French Alps in the east.

The city is easily reached within 2 hours by plane from most major cities in Europe and is a hub of Europe’s highway network.
