A cultivated and sophisticated city, Geneva is nestled among the Savoy Alps and the Jura and sits on the shores of the spectacular Lake Geneva, or as the French speaking locals call it; Lac Léman. The city is truly international, one third of its residents are foreigners and over 200 international organizations are based here including the United Nations and the World Health Organization. Henri Dunant founded the Red Cross here in 1864. Geneva is famous for its watch industry and its fabulous Swiss Chocolate among others.
