    UNO City

    by Audrey118 Updated Jul 25, 2003
    UNO City

    The UNO city was built in the 1970s to host some UN agencies which had offices in Vienna. The impt agencies are the International Atomic energy and the other is Industrial Development Organisations.

    The interesting bit is that the Austraian Govt has leased the buildings to UN for a mere 1 Austrian Schilling (which is less than 1 cent euro) per year.

    It was a bit difficult to picture the building with the schorching and blinding sun all over the open area.
