Geneva (in French and officially: Genève /ʒə.nɛv/; in German: Genf /ˈgɛɱf/; in Romansh: Genevra) is a Swiss municipality of 201 818 inhabitants in the Canton of Geneva; it has city status and is the capital of the canton.

It is the second most populous city in the country after Zurich and the third most important financial center in Switzerland after Zurich and Basel. It is located where Lake Geneva flows back into the Rhone River. In 2019, Geneva was ranked by Mercer, together with Zurich and Basel, among the ten cities with the best quality of life in the world.

Geneva, a commercial, banking, industrial, intellectual and university centre, extends to the south-western end of Lake Geneva, on both banks of the Rhone, in the heart of a closed basin and surrounded by mountains (all in French territory: the Voirons, the Salève, the Mont de Sion, the Vuache and the Jura mountain range).

The vieille-ville (historical part of the city), made up of the City Center and Saint-Gervais districts, was formed on the top and surroundings of a hill on the left bank of the lake. This hill has been a natural refuge since prehistoric times protected by the lake, the Rhône, the Arve, marshes and ditches to the east.

The city expanded during the 19th century after the demolition of the fortifications (1850-1880). In the bay of Geneva, the pierres du Niton are visible, two rocks that emerge from the lake and date back to the last glaciation.

These are two erratic and very stable boulders; for this reason one of the two was chosen by General Guillaume-Henri Dufour as a reference point for the average height of the lake, the altitude of the city and subsequently adopted for the calculation of all altitudes in Switzerland.

In 2000, the city was awarded the Wakker Prize of the Swiss National Heritage League for its plan to modernize the banks of the Rhône and the surrounding urban environment. The Fil du Rhône project was then gradually implemented.

According to the Federal Statistical Office, Geneva has an area of 15.88 km². 92.1% of this area corresponds to inhabited areas or infrastructures, 1.5% are agricultural areas, 3.1% wooded areas and 3.2% unproductive areas.
