Geneva is the second most-populous city in Switzerland, after Zurich, and it is the most-populous in the region of Romandy. It is situated where the River Rhône exits the Lake Geneva in the west of the country and has around 212 communities. It is a global city that acts as a centre of finance, and a hub for diplomacy due to multiple international organisations, including many agencies of the UN and Red Cross, having headquarters in the city. A Mercer poll in 2019 ranked Geneva in the top ten most liveable cities in the world. The name of the city was first mentioned in Latin texts by Julius Caesar, originally being spelt as Genava, stemming from the Celtic for ‘bending river’. Ice hockey is popular in Switzerland, and the city is home to a team which play in the National League. It is also home to popular Swiss football team Servette FC, a club that was founded in 1890, and was named after the borough set on the right bank of the Rhône. Also, Geneva is home to the 2013 and 2015 Swiss Basketball Champions Lions de Genève. Just outside the city is the Geneva Cointrin International Airport, which connects to the Swiss Federal Railways network with links to Paris, Lyon, Montpellier and internal Swiss locations, allowing further travel and easy access for flights. There is a long tradition of watchmaking in the city, which dates as far back as the 16th century. Such watchmakers as Mercier, Rolex, Chopard and Franck Muller have been based in the city since their foundation. The opera house Grand Théâtre de Genève, which opened in 1876, houses the largest stage in Switzerland. There are often operas, dances, recitals, concerts and theatre performances in the venue, and it is the home of the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande. 82 buildings are listed as heritage sites, and the entire old city is in the Inventory of Swiss Heritage Sites. Such religious buildings as Notre-Dame Church, Temple de l’Auditoire and St-Germain Church are all heritage sites, as well as civic buildings like University of Geneva, Biobliothèque de Genève, and Palais Wilson. Geneva has an altitude of around 373.6 metres- Mont Blanc can be seen from the city and it is just an hour’s drive away. During the 5th century, it became a Christian city under Roman rule, and acquired its very first Bishop. In the Middle Ages, it was ruled under the Holy Roman Empire, which lasted long into the 14th century. In the late 1500s, it was granted a charter of self-governance. In 1907, the separation of Church and State was arranged.
The climate is usually warm, with an oceanic breeze. The winters are cool, with light frosts and mild snow, with the summers being relatively warm and perfect for hikes or general outdoor activities. Skiing is very popular in the region, with many mountains nearby subject to snowfall, making them ideal for the sport. Geneva’s English garden is home to the world’s largest Flower Clock. The face is five metres in diameter, and there are 6,500+ live flowers that bloom at differing times, making the clock change colour frequently. Around 10% of people who live in Geneva are employed by an International organisation. The University is home to the famous Reformation Wall, which honours icons of the Protestant Reformation. The Tavel House in Geneva has attracted travellers from all over the world and has been sparking the curiosity of travellers for over nine centuries. The highest temperature ever recorded in the region was in July 2015 when it hit 39.7 Celsius, and the record low was -20 Celsius, which was in 1956. Switzerland is renowned for its delicious chocolate, and the famous brands of Lindt and Toblerone only scratch the surface. There are many independent chocolate shops located in Geneva which sell indulgent treats and handmade, luxury specialties which will send you to chocolate heaven. One of the most popular foods in Switzerland is the famous Raclette- if you’ve seen any food TV shows or videos, you will know all about this savoury masterpiece. Raclette cheese is produced in rounds and is heated in front of a fire or by a special machine, and then scraped onto diner’s plates, served with potatoes, charcuterie and other vegetables. It is intended for relaxed, sociable eating, and it is a popular staple in Geneva. The official language of both the city and the canton of Geneva is French, and English is the second most common language. It is clear to see why the beautiful city of Geneva is popular with those looking to move to Switzerland, whether they want to be closer to their job, want a holiday home, retire or just start a new life!
