The United Nations Office.

The League of Nations was first established and recognized right after the World War I and was proposed to endorse protection, avert war, resolve global arguments and develop international welfare. Sadly, the League of Nations was not capable of preventing violence from the Axis Powers during the 1930's and so mislaid a lot of its integrity, honour, and uprightness.

The League of Nations was then replaced by the United Nations after the 2nd World War, nowdays tourists enjoy a directed tour of the United Nations historical hall.
