  • The UN tour was and will always be one of my best parts of Geneva. I loved taking the famous flags photo and had to grab UN souvenirs from the gift shop!
  • A historic place. The buildings are pretty old but hold so much history within them!
  • Attended a conference at the UN. Great facilities set within great grounds.
  • A Must visit place at least once in a lifetime #UnitedNations
  • If you have doubts about the rol of the UN you should pay visit here. The guides are ready to answer all your questions
