Lake and blue sky

Vevey is located in the northeastern shore of Lake of Geneva (Lac Leman) and is known for its beauty - the combination of a cozy city, blue water lake and snow-covered mountains. Ernest Hemingway, Charle Chaplin and other famous people lived here. Its about an hour train ride from Geneva.

"A most beautiful place in the world " (Hemingway)

A book says that Hemingway lived here and was impressed by the city and the nature surrounding this city.
You agree with his observation especially when the snow-covered mountains are clearly seen over the lake.

A very very pleasant city

Charlie Chaplin had also a summer house here and his statue is standing the middle of the promenade street.
He must have enjoyed his holiday here when he was vacationing and not entertaining the audience with his comical and mischievous acts.

    It is very nice to see the tips and photos of Vevey. Apparently just a few people visited Vevey, and many, many - Montreux. We preferred Vevey :-)

    Nice page, Toshio. Haven't been there for ages. So, it's time I revisited as there were no statues etc. in the old times.

    I remembered this place... the Swiss are some of the luckiest people in the world! I've often felt a sense of peace in this country; not many places in the world generate such serenity as this country does!

    Thank your for your comment on Vevey page. Yes the bib folk is funny and the knife is missing. I may see the knife somewhere in the lake near Geneva. I have to watch out. Have a good day.
