Once Lausanne was the intellectual capital of the country and attracted such great thinkers as Rousseau and Voltaire. Now it is a paradise for lovers of water skiing, swimming and boat. The International Olympic Committee even set up here its headquarters. The city's history can be traced in his sights: the medieval cathedral, the Palace Museum Ryumin and ears, the port where Lord Byron wrote "The Prisoner of Chillon" and which was ratified by the Treaty of Lausanne. To enjoy the amazing views, you need to climb the tower signals de Sauvabelin.
