In memory of the Swedes who lost their lives serving for the UN
The UN monument is a memorial dedicated to those Swedish people who lost their lives while working for UN. It is situated partly in the water at the shore of Djurgårdsbrunnsviken, close to the Maritime Museum at the Museum Park. The monument was inaugurated in 1995 and each year on 29th May the Veteran Day ceremony is held next to the UN monument and the nearby Restare memorial.
The artwork is made from bronze and granite. You can easily walk here from the Maritime Museum or the National Museum of Science and Technology. There is a beautiful view of the water and island of Djurgården from the monument.
