The old town of Geneva is situated on the slopes of the southern bank of the Rhone River. Due to the high terrain, the locals also call it the mountain city. There are not only ancient buildings such as churches, but also many art galleries, small bars and antique shops on the winding old streets. The art galleries have a variety of styles, and there are pottery jars from ancient China and Japan which belong to early impressionist works and have been placed in the conspicuously bright space.

Switzerland is a watch kingdom with a hundred years of superb watchmaking. You know that there are more than 200 parts in a small mechanical watch. To become a Swiss mechanical watch master, it takes four years of apprenticeship to start the watch. . In the workshop in the old town of Geneva, wearing a magnifying glass to take apart the mechanical watch, using a pair of tweezers to pick up a tiny movement, my uncontrollable trembling hand.
Swiss watchmaker Booker said: "It is impossible for a watchmaker to complete the 1,200 processes of watchmaking in dissatisfaction and resentment; in confrontation and hatred, it is necessary to accurately sharpen a piece. The 254 parts required for the timepiece are even harder than the sky."
Day-to-day watchmaking work is tedious and boring,
tabulation is practice.
What's the matter in the world?

When you come to Switzerland in early December, you must not miss the most prestigious festival of the year, the Geneva Festival.
After the night falls, the adults and children wearing traditional costumes hold the torches, wander around the old city, participate in concerts and other special events to commemorate the soldiers who defended peace in Geneva that year.
Follow the rhythm of the locals, and cross the time tunnel back to 1602, reminiscent of the history that is worthy of the pride and pride of all the people in Geneva!
