What people are saying:

Walk aimlessly in the old city and come to this St. Peter's Basilica, which has a long history of 900 years. The flag of Geneva, Switzerland has an eagle and a key. The black eagle on the left symbolizes the Holy Roman Empire. It represents that Geneva was once a free city of the Holy Roman Empire, that is, a city that has a certain self-system and is directly under the jurisdiction of Emperor Shinra (not a lord); the key on the right symbolizes Saint Peter. Representative Geneva was once the seat of the Pope. Today St. Peter’s Basilica in the Old Town is a great place to ascend and overlook Geneva.

Additional Information

Introduction

The old town of Geneva is situated on the slopes of the southern bank of the Rhone River. Due to the high terrain, the locals also call it the mountain city. There are not only ancient buildings such as churches, but also many art galleries, small bars and antique shops on the winding old streets. The art galleries have a variety of styles, and there are pottery jars from ancient China and Japan which belong to early impressionist works and have been placed in the conspicuously bright space.
