Vienna
2,000 years
of European history,
in one city
             
             
 
The
United
Nations


Since 1979 Vienna is the location of the 4th headquarters of the United Nations (with New York, Geneva and Nairobi) and home to one of the most prominent of the UN organizations: the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).

In 2005 the IAEA and its then Director General Mohamed Elbaradei were awarded the Nobel Prize for Peace for "their work for a safer and more peaceful world."
