The climate of Geneva (Switzerland)
Geneva is the capital of the Geneva canton. The climate is strongly influenced by the lake which is in the vicinity, the Rhone River, the Avre River and the Jura mountain range. This causes summers to be moderate and winters to be mild . However, a strong northerly wind may cause a cold feel. Geneva is also known as a mini-metropolis because of the many foreigners that live here and the many multinationals and banks that can be found here. Geneva is also the seat of the headquarters of many multinationals. Among them are the United Nations and the Red Cross. One of the main attractions of the city is Lake Geneva with its famous fountain, the Jet díEau. The Mont Blanc can also been seen from the city. The Saint-Pierre Cathedral is well worth visiting; a visit to one of the museums can be recommended as well.
