Welcome to Geneva

2014/09/29 16

Today, I would like to take you to Geneva. A gorgeous city located in the french part of Switzerland. One word that comes to my mind when I think about Geneva is Cozy. The city is very memorable for its gigantic fountain, lake Geneva, chocolate, motor show and expensive shops. It is the second biggest city in Switzerland, but it felt quite small to me. geneva The first thing you need to know before coming to Switzerland is how expensive everything is. Therefore, if you plan to visit this beautiful country bear this major point in mind. But, don’t let the prices scare you away from coming to Switzerland, it’s worth it.geneva 13Geneva deserves a full day of a walking tour. So, wear comfortable shoes! Don’t forget to take a stop at a chocolate shop to try out the famous Swiss chocolate.  geneva 10 Geneva 11 geneva 12Transportation in Geneva is the best I’ve ever used. I loved taking tram rides everywhere I went. Every bus, train, and tram that I went on was very clean and reliableGeneva 1 Geneva 3 Geneva 4The peace and slow pace of this city were very inspiring to me. I found Switzerland to be a very laid-back country, which I think is great. Switzerland should be on top of your list if you’re looking for a calm place where you can reflect back on your life, get a higher education or write a novel. Geneva 6 geneva 7In my opinion, the best time to come to Geneva is in the summer or during a motor show. Every march, Geneva hosts a very popular motor show. If you want to see the show, you will need to buy a ticket earlier than the actual show through their website. I bought my ticket a month in advance. If you will get a chance to see the show, definitely take it. It was really awesome. What remained in my memory is how crowded it was and good-looking future cars that I’ve seen.Geneva18See the Lake Geneva, wander around the town, visit Musee des Arts, stop by a local park and enjoy the clean Swiss air. If you are coming to Switzerland in the winter, then skiing is a must. If you will want to go on a nice dinner, don’t worry, there are many options to choose from. I dined at the Cafe du Centre and really liked the atmosphere and food.geneva 8 Geneva 9 geneva 14 geneva 15geneva19My favorite part of visiting Geneva was walking along the lake during the sunset. For me, dusk is the prettiest time of the day and Geneva looks charming at such time. It is a very comfortable city. After five days that I spent there, I felt very familiar with the city and actually didn’t want to leave. I made many wonderful memories in Switzerland, and I hope you will get a chance to come and make many memories there too!Geneva20 Geneva 20 geneva22 Geneva21 geneva25 Geneva24Follow me on BLOGLOVIN’TWITTERFACEBOOKTUMBLRGOOGLE +
