Kraków Airport

 

Geneva Cointrin International Airport is situated 4 km from the centre of Geneva. It is the second biggest airport in Switzerland, handling several millions of passengers a year. Geneva Airport has the longest runway in Switzerland, which is 3900 meters long. The northern border of the airport runs along the Swiss and French border and therefore the airport can be accessed from both countries.
You can get to the centre of Geneva by bus or train from the station that is situated just next to the check-in and arrival points. At the airport there are transport companies that carry passengers to different locations in France as well.

Geneva is the second most populated city in Switzerland. It is considered the most cosmopolitan city in Europe, since almost half the population of Geneva hold a non-Swiss passport. 22 international organisations (among others the European headquarters of the United Nations, WHO, the World Trade Organisation, International Red Cross and Crescent Movement) and over 200 non-governmental organisations have their seats here. Geneva is also called the capital city of the watchmaking industry.
The most important historical monuments of Geneva include: Evangelical and Reformed Gothic Saint Pierre Cathedral which was built in the period from the 12th to 15th century and whose facade comes from the18th century; Calvin's auditorium – a small chapel from the15th century constructed in the style of raw Gothic, where the leaders of Reformation used to have their meetings, led by John Calvin; Reformation Wall from 1909; Town Hall – its oldest part is the tower from 1455, the 18th century Carouge district; mausoleum of the Prince of Brunswick, Charles II, which is an exact replica of an outstanding Gothic mausoleum of Scaligeri Family from Verona.

The city offers a rich cultural program: theatres, opera, ballet, cinema, concerts, cabarets and 30 museums. You can find here also the biggest fountain in the world with water sprouting to the height of 140 m. The Alps with its highest peak, Mont Blanc, are visible from the city.
