Geneva, Switzerland is a cultural and economic centre for the country. It is the second largest city in terms of inhabitants and is home to a large number of museums. The University of Geneva is also in the city and is recognised as one of the best academic institutions in the world.
Some of the most popular museums in Geneva are Collections Baur, Musée Ariana and the Art History Museum.
The city has many popular park areas including Parc de la Grange and la Perle du Lac.
Venturing outside of the city into the Swiss countryside can be a great day trip for any visitor. Traditional farms and open landscapes are not far at all from the city centre.
Geneva International Airport (airport code GVA) is the main airport for Geneva and is a short four kilometres outside of the city centre. The airport acts as a major hub for Baboo and EasyJet Switzerland. SWISS uses the airport as a minor hub.
Swiss low cost carrier Baboo and EasyJet Switzerland fly the most routes from the airport. SWISS flies the most flights through Geneva International Airport, more than twice as many as the next carrier, Lufthansa. After those two, BMI, SAS and US Airways fly the most flights out of Geneva at around 400 per year each.
