It was created in 1951 to replace the former jet created in 1891. The present jet reaches a maximum height of 140 meters. The water reaches a speed 200 km/h. The water jet is hollow and filled with microscopic drops of water. This ensures it remains opaque and white. The Geneva water jet has been copied by many cities around the world. In the center of the view is the Mont Blanc bridge that leads to the Geneva train station, filled with jewellers watches and souvenir shops. On either sides of the river there are many banks, insurances, luxury hotels and shops.
