LAC LEMAN

The city of Geneva has a population of 200,000 inhabitants and is one of largest in Switzerland,is the capital of the canton and is situated on the Lac Leman,also named Lake of Geneva,it is divided by Rhône River,wich emerges from the lake,is a nice and picturesque city with numerous bridges.

Geneva is also a cultural,financial and administrative center,in fact the city is site of more than two hundreds international organizations,including the United Nations building,this is one of two buildings that the United Nations has in Europe,the other is located in Vienna.This is the reason that walking by streets in Geneva you'll find lot of foreign people that aren't tourist,they work and lives here.

I started my ten days guided tour in three countries in Central Europe in Geneva,also I stayed another full day here on my departure day.I took more than one hundred nice photos of the city during my first day here,but unfortunatelly I lost most of them,I had a little accident on my second day of tour in the city of Bern,(I'll write the full story on my Bern page soon) so I lost mostly of the pictures taken here,I just still having a few of them,so this page will be a short one.

Anyway,I enjoyed my visit to Geneva very much and the weather was perfect aswell,as you can see on my pictures,a good start for that trip!!.

    Your page brought back some memories of my trip to Geneva, but it was so long ago I forgot about much of what I saw. Too bad about your pictures.

    What a treat this was to read. Very good Introduction. Great background information on your tour. So sorry you lost your photos, but you did just fine with the ones you have. Your sincerity, enthusiasm, and eye for detail are such great assets.
