Geneva Christmas Market

Geneva is a city in Switzerland, the second largest in the country by population, and a very important financial center and seat of numerous international bodies. The city is located at the western end of Lake Geneva (Leman), practically surrounded by French territory. Its history begins with the Romans who built a fortified place there, in the 5th century it became the capital of the Kingdom of Burgundians. Between the 12th and 15th centuries the city was in the hands of the power of the bishops. In 1815 Geneva became part of the Swiss Confederation. The Geneva Christmas market is the most important event that takes place in cities during Christmas.
