Vienna, Austria

A very special card that I received last year from dear Earney, showing the United Nations' Office in Vienna.

The UNOV was established on 1 January 1980 as the third United Nations Headquarters after New York and Geneva (and before Nairobi). It performs representation and liaison functions with permanent missions to the United Nations (Vienna), the host Government and intergovernmental and non-governmental organizations in Vienna.
The Director-General of UNOV is Mr. Antonio Maria Costa (Italy), who was appointed in May 2002. Mr. Costa also serves as the Executive Director of UNODC (United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime)


and one extremely special mark for this card are the stamps themselves. as you can see, the left one is identical to the postcard and is actually an imprinted one, while the left one is also a special UN stamp, issued in 2008.
Vielen Dank Earney! <3
