About Geneva

Geneva is to Protestantism what Rome is to Catholicism. The Swiss city is the country's second most populous, and is famed for playing host to many international organizations and committees -- the International Committee of the Red Cross, the European base of the UN and the World Health Organization. Like many of Europe’s other well-known cities, Geneva's museums, parks and excellent cuisine aren’t hard to come by in this stately city. St. Pierre’s Cathedral is one towering example of religious-inspired ingenuity that decorates the Geneva skyline. Another tough to miss part of Geneva is the Jet d’Eau, or “jet of water” that at a maximum height of one hundred and forty meters has turned Lake Geneva into the world’s biggest fountain. Geneva’s prominence in global politics has made her into one of Europe’s best destinations for the politically interested tourist, but her wealth of locally developed culture is sure to charm a wide variety of visitors.

#Swiss Travel # live in the comics, what kind of feelings do you have? Enbo IBIS Hotel, Geneva, Switzerland, but really feels a real feeling. Today, Enbo recommended the IBIS Hotel in Geneva to the small partners, and hopes to have a childlike partner to feel it.
Hotel Name: Ibis Hotel Geneva Gera
Booking is called Geneva Shangpin Carouge Hotel
Enbokop: Geneva is the third largest city in Switzerland, after Zurich and Basel. Geneva has Lake Geneva, the largest lake in Western Europe. In the city, the park is dotted with flowers and the lakeside flowers are everywhere. The
Hotel is located in the heart of the small town of Carouge, Geneva. It has carefully selected 6 stylish cartoonists to create a unique and unique comic world with 119 rooms! Each of these 6 cartoonists Responsible for the comic design of a whole floor room, therefore, these 119 rooms represent 6 different comic worlds.
First entered the hotel, as if walking into the comics center in Brussels, looking for the adventures of Tintin! Find the world of the Smurfs. Comics are no longer the privilege of children. Often the depth of the heart touched by the brush is the depth that many film and television works cannot reach. The cartoons often give me creative self-brainstorms. Although the hotel is a three-star hotel, the three-star rating is relatively young, and the service and quality are not lost to many domestic five-stars. The comics that can be seen everywhere are really different from all the hotels that Enbo has lived in. This is an artist hotel. You can't help thinking, liberating yourself from the imagination in comics.
All rooms in the hotel include buffet breakfast and unlimited Wi-Fi, and pets are allowed. The hotel has a restaurant and two bars with a wide range of dining options and convenient leisure and entertainment.

Montreux's spring, walking to the mountains to see Narcissus

romantic jazz capital Montreux (Montreux), is an idyllic small town, known as the "Swiss Riviera". Situated on the shores of the vast Lake Geneva, between the lakes and mountains, there are churches and small houses. The surface of the city of Xiyong is the business card of Montreux.



In the early summer of the year, in the Montreux mountains of Switzerland, the red daffodils will suddenly open on the hillsides. They quickly open on both sides of the train track and open the ski resorts that are closed. A heavy snow, dyed the mountains into white, they are like the mission of replacing the heavy snow, with vigorous white, with dazzling light, officially bid farewell to the winter.

A few centuries ago, at the turn of the spring and summer, the opening of the wild daffodils was once a prosperous age. Like people who are keen to go to the Netherlands to see tulips in May, and to see lavender in Provence in July. Before the First World War, every year in June, a large number of people would come here to see the daffodils. The Narcissus Festival is lively and extraordinary, and the grandeur is unprecedented. The symphony orchestra plays the music, the ballet opera group takes turns, and the parade floats shuttle in the city... After 1957, due to natural and artificial factors, the wild daffodils are getting less and less, the daffodils The flower festival is closed. Until recently, the daffodil festival has come back. The Swiss Daffodil Protection Association has launched different daffodil walking themes. The train company has also adjusted the route for the daffodil festival. Each hiker is required to protect the daffodils while also allowing the picking of small bundles. The narcissus is taken away. As if it was re-emerged yesterday, people took the hand of a lover, took the child, went to the depths of the mountains, came for the daffodils everywhere, for an ancient festival.
