The Palace of Nations in Geneva, Switzerland is the largest diplomatic center in the world, the United Nations European headquarters. Surrounded by old trees and modern monuments, the building ranks second largest in Europe after Versailles and it is one of the most important attractions of Geneva.
Somewhere in a huge park, located on a gentle hill, there is the Palace of Nations - Palais des Nations, the first European headquarters of the United Nations where more than 200 international organisations operate.
The United Nations Palace from Geneva is a "classic" building with a sober, harmonious and well-balanced architecture. Along with the old palace, the new building gives the city an additional architectural nobility. Due to the fact that Geneva hosts the second headquarters of the UN (the first and most important is the one in New York) and that here operates a large number of international organisations the town has gained a worldwide notoriety that you can hardly see in other similar cities. In addition, this circumstance has attracted here a significant tourist flow, but this is also the contribution of the "intrinsic" values of Geneva since the architectural, artistical, cultural and historical legacy accumulated here over the centuries is very rich and diverse.
The Palace of Nations in Geneva is as a "state in a state". It has its own postal service with its own stamp just as Monaco. It is the place where 3500 civil servants from all around the world work and it is the most important congress center where over 5,000 meetings are held every year. The international symbol of Geneva, Palais des Nations was built between 1929 and 1936 and it is the European headquarters of the United Nations. This center of the worlds diplomacy has over 25,000 delegates each year. In its rooms you will find a large number of works of art.
