Geneva is a perfect place for families - small, beautiful and cultured, with a wealth of activities that take advantage of the natural surroundings. The quality of public facilities are high with well-maintained parks and playgrounds, the vast dazzling lake offering plenty of water based activities, and of course the mountains which hold outdoor pursuits for every season.
The size of the city makes it feel safe, comfortable and perfect for exploring with children in tow. There is a diverse range of historic and architectural offerings, a medieval historic centre, many museums and cultural sites. This combination of nature and culture makes Geneva and surrounding areas an unbeatable place to live, and why it is ranked in the top ten for expatriates.
Over 40% of its population come from abroad making it a diverse and multicultural city. One of its main draws is the number of international organisations, including the United Nations and World Health Organisation, which are based here. This offers great appeal to older students, excited by the prospect of mixing with such a diverse multinational society, and being close enough to experience such great institutions first-hand.
