Geneva Cornavin Station

Geneva, with its humanitarian tradition and cosmopolitan atmosphere, is considered the 'capital of peace', as it is home to the European headquarters of the UNO and the headquarters of the Red Cross. The symbol of the 'world's smallest metropolis' is the 'jet d'eau', a fascinating fountain on Lake Geneva whose jet creates a 140-metre-high water column. The old town is the heart of Geneva and houses the shopping and business district. This is dominated by St-Pierre Cathedral, although the real centre of the old town is the Place du Bourg-de-Four, the oldest square in the city.
The 'Horloge Fleuri', the flower clock in the English Garden, is a famous symbol of the Geneva watchmaking industry.
Geneva has much to offer in the way of culture. The Grand Théâtre, Geneva's opera house, hosts internationally renowned artists. It is also worth visiting the numerous museums, such as the International Watchmaking Museum, which boasts a rich collection of music boxes and jewellery clocks, or the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Museum, which provide a closer insight into the work of the humanitarian organisation.
