Another district not to be missed is the international district of Geneva, where the Palais des Nations is located, the European headquarters of the United Nations Organization (UNO) and the second most important in the world after New York. It is the one that gave Geneva the nickname of “city of peace”. There are guided tours of the building, in the official website of the UN you can find information.
In the square in front of the building is the Broken Chair monument: a monumental wooden sculpture of 5.5 tons representing a chair with a broken leg. It symbolises the rejection of anti-personnel mines and cluster bombs: a wake-up call to heads of state visiting Geneva.
