Geneva has 200.000 residents and it's the 2nd-most populous city in Switzerlands.
It is at the south-western end of Lake Geneva.
Geneva is a global city, a financial centre, and a worldwide centre for diplomacy due to the presence of numerous international organizations, including the headquarters of many agencies of the United Nations and the Red Cross. It is also where the Geneva Conventions were signed, which chiefly concern the treatment of wartime non-combatants and prisoners of war.
Many museums and art galleries can be found in the city, including the International Museum of the Reformation and Museum of the International Committee of the Red Crosss. One of the crowning symbols of Geneva is the monumental Jet d'Eau, a ountain of water pumped 140m into the air.
