UN Vienna: Vienna International Centre

After cover from UN Vienna, i also received postcard from UN Vienna, also from Numiphil 2017. The Vienna International Centre (VIC) is the campus and building complex hosting the United Nations Office at Vienna. It is colloquially also known as UNO City. The VIC, designed by Austrian architect Johann Staber, was built between 1973 and 1979 just north of the river Danube. The initial idea of setting up an international organization in Vienna came from the Chancellor of Austria Dr. Bruno Kreisky. Six Y-shaped office towers surround a cylindrical conference building for a total floor area of 230,000 square metres. The highest tower stands 127 metres tall, enclosing 28 floors.

Stamp on postcard is from set UNESCO World Heritage - Taj Mahal, India, issued on 11.07.2014. You can also see beautiful postmark from Numiphil 2017. This stamp is printed with gold foil. You can see it better from different angle on picture bellow.

Thank you Wolfgang!
