"UN Executive headquarters" Nations Unies - ONU Tip by andrewyong

Nations Unies - ONU, Geneva: 18 reviews and 26 photos

Towards the north of the city is the United Nations complex. It's about 25 minutes walk from the central bus/train station. Many of the UN organisation have their headquarters here namely International Telecommunications Union (ITU), UN High Commision for Refugees (UNHCR) etc.

The UNHCR has a memorial with an eternal flame on its front entrance in memory of its members killed in the many atrocities that still happen around the world.

The UN main building is quite impressive set in a sprawling ground with many sculptures.
