After the World War II, in 1945, it was decided to have a body for promoting international cooperation and to avoid another World War. With that objective in mind on 24October that year, The United Nations (UN) was established with 51 members. These later increased to 193.
The headquarters of UN is in Manhattan, New York with offices in Geneva, Nairobi and Vienna. Since we were in New York we did not want to miss this opportunity and bought a tour of UN.
Our guide was a very knowledgeable and he showed very keen interest in answering our questions. Since we all know about UN, I have tried to bring the high lights of our tour through my pictures.
