Geneva was beautiful during my short short stay:
United Nations Plaza:
The International Red Cross was founded in Geneva (the similarities between the Red Cross flag and Switzerland's flag are not a coincidence). It started in response to war casualties. Red Cross volunteers would help injured soldiers regardless of which side they were on. The museum had some information on the Geneva Convention, which allowed them to work on the battlefield as a nuetral organization.

This was in Zurich where I spent six hours watching the beautiful river, writing in my journal and reading my book before heading on to Bratislava.
