Genève : Premières Impressions

My first impressions of Geneva:

Geneva is beautiful.

The gorgeous stone buildings transport one from modern day to ancient times.

Stone buildings complete with a sprinkling of snow.

There are swans floating on the lake, immediately making one feel like the star of a Disney princess movie.

It’s Protestantism with a bit a flare.

The church that houses Calvin’s chair looks a lot more Catholic than the churches in good ol’ America (probably because it was originally Catholic).

St. Pierre Cathedral.

The wall of statues celebrating the Protestant Reformers is very showy for Protestant principles, but I loved it all the same.

It’s also full of lovely modern day activities, such as giant chess in the park, or drinks and snacks at a restaurant floating on the lake.

A great place for a day trip, it left me wanting more.

  2. This looks amazing! Have fun in France :)
