| 61 5 CHATEAU DE CHILLON On the shore of Lake Geneva, in the vicinity of Montreux, the famous Chillon Castle has for centuries inspired artists and writers. Lord Byron, Jean-Jacques Rousseau and Victor Hugo are among the greats who’ve written about this architectural treasure. Once a fortress of the counts and dukes of Savoy dating back to the 12th century, the complex consists of around 25 buildings, with agrarian sights including the Great Hall, with a magni cent view of Lake Geneva, Gothic underground rooms, a chapel adorned with 14th century paintings; and the bedroom of the duke of Savoy, decorated with medieval murals. ŠATO DE ŠILON Na obali Ženevskog jezera, u blizini Montroa, čuveni Šato de Šilon vekovima je inspirisao umetnike i pisce. Lord Bajron, Žan Žak Ruso i Viktor Igo spadaju među velikane koji su pisali o tom arhitektonskom blagu. Nekada tvrđava grofova i vojvoda savojskih iz 12. veka, kompleks obuhvata oko 25 zgrada, a glavne znamenitosti uključuju Veliku dvoranu sa veličanstvenim pogledom na Ženevsko jezero, gotičke podzemne prostorije, kapelu ukrašenu slikama iz 14. veka i spavaću sobu vojvoda od Savoja ukrašenu srednjovekovnim muralima. ŽENEVSKO JEZERO Ženevsko jezero, najveće alpsko jezero, proteže se švajcarsko-francuskom granicom, a zapljuskuje obale nekih od najpopularnijih gradova Švajcarske. Grad Ženeva nalazi se između snegom prekrivenih vrhova i mesta gde se Rona izliva u jezero. Ovaj grad mira u kojem se govori francuski evropsko je sedište Ujedinjenih nacija i odiše prijatnom mešavinom francuskog „joie de vivre“ i švajcarske strukture. Šetališta, parkovi i vrtovi okružuju jezero, a stari grad je lepo mesto za šetnju među istorijskim zgradama. Takođe na jezeru, oko 62 kilometra od Ženeve, Lozana ima divan pogled na okolni region i Alpe u daljini. Prošetajte se srednjovekovnim starim gradom sa njegovim slatkim kafićima i buticima i zapanjujućom gotičkom katedralom. U podnožju Alpa, na Ženevskom jezeru, Montro je domaćin svetski poznatog džez festivala. LAKE GENEVA Lake Geneva, Europe’s largest alpine lake, extends from the Swiss-French border and has along its shores some of Switzerland’s most popular cities. The city of Geneva is located between snow-covered peaks and the spot where the River Rhône empties into the lake. This “city of peace” that speaks French is the European Headquarters of the United Nations and exudes a pleasant fusion of French Joie de Vivre and Swiss structure. Walkways, parks and gardens surround the lake, while the old town is a beautiful area for strolling among historic buildings. Also on the lake, about 62 kilometres from Geneva, Lausanne offers wonderful views of the surrounding region and the Alps in the distance. Stroll around the medieval old town with its cute cafes and boutiques, and stunning Gothic cathedral. In the foothills of the Alps, on Lake Geneva, Montreux is home to a world-famous jazz festival. 4 iStock / Nicolas McComber iStock / emicristea
