“Amazing historical site.”
Reviewed September 24, 2013

I took my friends on a tour after an internship a few summers ago. Granted, it is a pain to get through security, but the wait and hassle are well worth it. There are few places in this world where so much of world history has taken place and continues to take place. If you're a diplomacy/world history junky, you must come here

we took the guided tour and it was amazing. our tour guide was old age lady who was giving information and recalled the historical events with great enthusiasm. we actually could enter the hall.
the entrance to the guided tour is not quite clear due to ongoing constructions. but fortunately we met another family from UK in the morning at CERN and they directed us to the place accurately. we would have liked to miss this one.

“Swiss break”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

Took the 18 tram from Station, arrived ready for the first tour (12CHF). A fascinating tour with a very knowledgable guide, well worth every Franc. Wonderful architecture and you could take photos almost anywhere, a worthwhile trip.

“Surprise visit!”
Reviewed September 11, 2013

We took a bus tour of the area and saw the front of the building. Wondered it we could take a tour and the security guy told us to walk around the block (15-20 min later) we arrive at the entrance and are welcomed in and had a great tour. What a pleasant surprise!

At its founding, the UN had 51 member states; there are now 193. From its offices around the world, the UN and its specialized agencies decide on substantive and administrative issues in regular meetings held throughout the year. The organization has six principal organs: the General Assembly (the main deliberative assembly); the Security Council (for deciding certain resolutions for peace and security); the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) (for assisting in promoting international economic and social cooperation and development); the Secretariat (for providing studies, information, and facilities needed by the UN); the International Court of Justice (the primary judicial organ); and the United Nations Trusteeship Council (which is currently inactive). Other prominent UN System agencies include the World Health Organization (WHO), the World Food Programme (WFP) and United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF). The UN's most prominent position is that of the office of Secretary-General which has been held by Ban Ki-moon of South Korea since 2007. NGOs may be granted consultative status with ECOSOC and other agencies to participate in the UN's work.
