Anyone interested in global politics or finance is familiar with Geneva, Switzerland. Switzerland hosts a flourishing economy and social scene, most popular for its beautiful sights and foods. Geneva feels like Boston with a French-twist, the perfect break from Croatian life. I realized shortly after landing in Switzerland how much I missed being in a very Westernized setting amid the familiar bustle of city life.
Housing was relatively expensive (I stayed in an Airbnb with two other girls for three nights, and paid almost $100 in addition to my airline tickets), but you can find cheap food and activities, especially if you’re a student. I suggest investing in a transportation day pass, because if you’re caught on a bus or train without a ticket, you get a 100 Franc fine (learned that the hard way).
Highlights from my trip include touring the United Nations European headquarters, eating cheese fondue, exploring the Natural History Museum of Geneva and the Museum of Art and History, trying vin chaud (hot wine), and walking around Lake Geneva. Check out my pictures below from my weekend in Geneva!
