Take a tour of the European home of the United Nations, the monumental Palais des Nations, Genève, which houses a large collection of public art and serves as one of the world's major centers of diplomacy. Built in the 1930s for the now-defunct League of Nations, the classically designed compound hosts thousands of global conferences and smaller meetings, welcoming 25,000 delegates each year. Take the guided tour to see the enormous assembly hall, ornate council chamber, and surrounding landscaped gardens, which offer fine views of the nearby Alps.
