5 places to explore the international city of peace & justice in The Hague

1) Peace Palace

Made possible by donations from steel baron Andrew Carnegie, the Peace Palace was built after the 1899 Hague Peace Conference to provide a home for the Permanent Court of Arbitration and the Library of International Law. Today it also hosts the UN’s International Court of Justice. A guided tour through the splendid rooms of the palace is a must-do. And do not miss the historical garden tour in summer.
