Vienna International Centre United Nations Office
Vienna International Centre United Nations Office is a very impressive building from architecture point of view! We hurried in after an elaborate security check. But in spite of all hurrying we reached late and missed the tour they give tourists.
Vienna International Centre, one of the official residences of United Nations. The UN is open to visitors; there are guided tours, of course no photography is permitted. Lot of understandable security checks, and once through with the checks you get into a very international atmosphere.

Our Experience at UNOV
The staff there was totally helpless about arranging a visit. It is important to be punctual even on holidays, my kids learned that day! Only interesting activity we did here was of sending self addressed cards. We purchased stamps from United Nations Office, pasted on a couple of cards and posted from there to get postage seal on them.
There are 191 country member flags on display, and tourists mostly children were happily pointing out their own. This definitely is an interesting place to visit because this is where many important decisions concerning the betterment of our world are taken.
