Only a few decades ago this place was a small settlement founded on the shore of the Geneva Lake. First tourists appeared here in the middle of the 19th century. Due to amazing nature this area attracted artists and poets who gained inspiration by looking at beautiful mountains and quiet surface of the lake. Each year the number of visitors increased and that fact speeded up the development of the city and its tourism sector.
Nowadays this place is a famous resort of the world scale. Montreux has also been chosen the venue for the annual jazz festival. Here are opened several old music schools, the students of which are happy to demonstrate their skills performing in concerts and taking part in competitions.
