It seems to us that Montreux & Vevey are kind of twin-towns – both look like rising from the water of Lake Geneva, both were settled in Roman times, both of a similar population (one a bit more than 20,000 inhabitants, the other a bit less than that), both, apart, earned the nickname of "Pearl of Swiss Riviera", even if you want to bye a map of one – you'll get the map of both, because the maps are printed on the same sheet.
Montreux is the more popular "twin", more vivid and "wild" one. It is known for its Jazz Festival, Freddie Mercury's Montreux Memorial Day, Golden Rose Festival, Smoke on the Water… And, more than anything, for the famous Chateau Chillon.
