One of my favorite things about Geneva (so far) is all the weird and wonderful art that peppers the city. The Plaine de Plainpalais is one of the 'must see' spots for short term residents like myself. (In my abominable french I like to call it the Pan-pan.)
On the weekends it hosts a farmers market. Once a month there is a flea market of sorts. And the wide expanse always has some interesting exhibit or another. Right now the square is filled with peculiar sculptures intended to catch the eyes of children.
I absolutely adore this sculpture of Frankenstein's monster. The sculpture commemorates Mary Shelly's Frankenstein which was set in Geneva. The neighborhood of Plainpalais is where Frankenstein's brother was murdered by the creature.
