Lake Geneva, Lake Leman(noun)
a lake between southwestern Switzerland and France that is crossed from east to west by the Rhone
Lake Geneva or Lake Léman is a lake in Switzerland and France. It is one of the largest lakes in Western Europe. 59.53% 345.31 km² of it comes under the jurisdiction of Switzerland, and 40.47% 234.71 km² under France. The average surface elevation of 372 m above sea level is controlled by the Seujet Dam in Geneva. Lake Geneva, formed by a retreating glacier, has a crescent shape that narrows around Yvoire on the southern shore. It can thus be divided figuratively into the "Grand Lac" to the east and the "Petit Lac" to the west. The Chablais Alps border its southern shore, the western Bernese Alps lie over its eastern side. The high summits of Grand Combin and Mont Blanc are visible from some places. Compagnie Générale de Navigation sur le lac Léman operates boats on the lake.
