(Geneva, Switzerland, CH

Known for its scenic location on the south-westerly side of Lake Geneva (Lac de Genève), the Swiss city of Geneva can be found within the Romandy language region, in western Switzerland. Geneva is a vast city and home to a population of approximately 200,000 people, making it amongst Switzerland's most densely populated cities.

The very heart of Geneva is based around the shores of the lake and is divided by the winding Rhône River. Slightly to the north, the Gare de Cornavin railway station is a notable point of reference and usually clearly indicated on most city maps.
