Lake Geneva attracted visitors for thousands of years, and the invaders. Cheerful city of Geneva is located on the west coast of the island. On all sides it is surrounded by majestic peaks, snow-capped. The city is quite possible to get around on foot; those who love speed, can rent a bicycle. In any guide book in the first place should be a visit to the coastal zone of Lake Geneva and its famous fountain, the Flower Clock in the English Garden, the Cathedral of St. Peter, the Reformation Wall, the Palace of Nations, and the place of origin of the UN.
