Geneva is one of the most attractive cities in Europe. Not only is it a popular location for skiing because of its grand mountains -- it also is rich in history. Its culture is influenced by the Celts, the Burgundians, and the Francs. The European headquarters of the United Nations is based in this city. It is also the founding place of the Red Cross Committee.
Geneva has various palaces and castles that add to its charm and beauty. The Maison Tavel and the St. Pierre Cathedral are good examples of the old yet amazing structures still standing in Geneva. Museums that you should not miss when you come for a visit include the Musee d‘Histoire Naturelle, the Musee Ariana, and the Musee d' Ethnographie. Perhaps the most beautiful Geneva attraction is the Jet d' Eau fountain, the tallest fountain in the world which sprays onlookers with mild mists and at times could soak people depending on wind direction.
