The United Nations

The United Nations was created after the Second World War, so that all countries could determine together the best way to maintain peace in the world. The United Nations Building is the headquarters of the United Nations.

All countries are represented, so all visitors speak different languages. The guided tour is the same in 20 languages!


The visit begins in the General Assembly Hall, the place that has seen the most personalities from all over the world pass through.
You will also see the Security Council Chamber, where every nation can come and ask for arbitration from all the countries of the world for the resolution of conflicts.
Another characteristic is that it receives objects of great interest and works of art, coming from donations from member nations and friends of the United Nations.
You will see objects made with pieces of salvaged from Hiroshima and Nagasaki, ancient statues, but also a sputnik, a piece of moonstone brought back to earth by the Apollo 11 Mission.

You will appreciate the works of art gathered here, such as those by Rockwell, or Picasso, among others.

You will also be able to buy postage stamps, unique! Collector stamps issued by the United Nations Postal Administration, stamps that can only be purchased within the United Nations Building and that can only be sent from this same building!
