The Swiss city of Geneva offers spectacular scenery and picturesque views. In addition, you'll find lots of high-end shopping and delectable foods. Of course, one of the most sought after attractions of the city is the iconic Jet d'Eau - an amazing water jet found at the center of Lake Geneva. Originally this stream was not set up to be a fountain, rather to assist in releasing pressure from a nearby hydraulic plant. Before long, locals and visitors began to gather to see the marvel of the water jet. It was decided to move the jet to the center of the lake and soon after, it became a symbol of the city. If you're looking for a relaxing afternoon, take a leisurely stroll around the lake to see the fountain from all different angles. Other notable sights to see include the Reformation Wall and the Old Town. This city is definitely a Swiss gem!
