  • I didn’t do the tour inside as it was about to close. From outside the building, its garden with the flags and the sign have their special vibe and awesome to take pics with. The main entrance has nothing much but the back entrance used for the tours next to the flags garden is the spot to take pics at. If you want to do the tour check the timings as they are limited. Check my IG @solly600 for more live travel insights.
  • It's quite exciting for one who is interested in UN and international matters. But for tourists, there is nothing much just a place to visit and take pictures. And it's the opposite with the ICRC.
