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.

Children should know the Role of UNOV

The Vienna International Centre United Nations Office staff works for peace, human rights and development. They aim to use atoms for peace. Main objective of UNOV is to reduce poverty through inclusive and sustainable industrial development. One of their main agenda is to ban nuclear testing and bring the benefits of the peaceful uses of outer space to every part of the world. They are striving to remove legal obstacles to international trade, and also make the world safer from drugs, crime and terrorism.

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.
