About Geneva

Geneva is to Protestantism what Rome is to Catholicism. The Swiss city is the country's second most populous, and is famed for playing host to many international organizations and committees -- the International Committee of the Red Cross, the European base of the UN and the World Health Organization. Like many of Europe’s other well-known cities, Geneva's museums, parks and excellent cuisine aren’t hard to come by in this stately city. St. Pierre’s Cathedral is one towering example of religious-inspired ingenuity that decorates the Geneva skyline. Another tough to miss part of Geneva is the Jet d’Eau, or “jet of water” that at a maximum height of one hundred and forty meters has turned Lake Geneva into the world’s biggest fountain. Geneva’s prominence in global politics has made her into one of Europe’s best destinations for the politically interested tourist, but her wealth of locally developed culture is sure to charm a wide variety of visitors.

Fountain
The Grand Fountain is located on the Lake Geneva near the English Garden and is one of the more representative landscapes in Geneva. The large fountain is like a water jet from a whale, and its spectacular sight can be seen far from the city center. The big fountain will have a rainbow in the sunny daylight, and there will be a chance to see the big fountain under the illumination at night. It is also very magnificent.
