In memory of Swedes who lost their lives in service of 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 May 29th the ceremony Veteran Day is held next to the UN-monument and the nearby memorial Restare.
The art work is made from bronze and granite. You can easily walk here from the Maritime Museum or the National Museum of Science and Technology. From the monument you will have a beautiful view of the water and island of Djurgården.
