“Geneva is one big garden,” said one of the locals that we met there. “It is indeed!” I told myself while in awe of its summer wonder.

Jet d’Eau – Geneva’s most famous landmark.
  L’horloge fleurie –flower clock. Second biggest flower clock in the world next to the one located in Tehran, Iran.


  As from a local we met, this place was bought by a Jew and made it a Jewish mausoleum

 Musée Ariana – one of the famous museums in town that houses hundred thousands of glasses and porcelain items.
Broken Chair Monument – one leg of the giant chair is broken (it just doesn’t show in this angle). It is said to be a symbol of peace.

The giant ‘Broken Chair’, a work of art in wood, symbolises the campaign against landmines.The chair stands on only three legs. Its image has travelled to all 4 corners of the globe making it one of the 21st century’s most emblematic works of art.-geneve-tourisme.ch
