Lake Geneva

Geneva

Switzerland is often called the country of mountains and lakes – it harbors around 1500 lakes, and every single one is beautiful in its own way.

Perhaps the most mesmerizing water is Lake Geneva, the largest lake in the Swiss Alps and the second-largest freshwater body in Central Europe.

It fascinates with its pristine beauty and apparent waters. Not for nothing is it compared with a mirror – the Alps covering it from the wind make the water surface unshakable.

This natural mirror reflects picture-postcard mountain peaks, vineyards, tall spruces, buildings, and medieval castles scattered across the slopes.

A beach holiday on Lake Geneva is a unique pastime – only you can sunbathe while admiring snow-capped summits here.
