Our illustrated travel guide will take you to Geneva, Switzerland.

Geneva is one of the world's major centers of international diplomacy, having served as the site of the initial headquarters of the International Committee of the Red Cross. Although the United Nations is now headquartered in New York, the organization still retains a large presence in Geneva at the Palais des Nations and many of its sister/child organizations, such as the World Health Organization and ILO. Geneva itself has only 188,000 citizens but 780,000 people live in the metropolitan region.

Geneva was one of the eight host cities in the 2008 European Football Championships.

Geneva is officially a French-speaking city, and the vast majority of the population speak French. All advertisements, information, and signage are in French. With the large international presence, English takes a close second. Geneva is a proud city although there is quite a bit more life to be found if you look under the surface, especially if you speak some French.
