The Swiss city of Geneva is located on the western shores of Lake Geneva with the snow-covered Alps in the distance. It is home to dozens of European and world organizations. The Red Cross was founded here in 1864 and the League of Nations in 1919. The city is also famous for finance, chocolates, and watch-making. The city is split in two by the Rhône River as it exits Lake Geneva. There's an old quarter with broad avenues by the river and narrower twisty streets elsewhere. The other side is mainly residential.
