The Peace Palace was so named to import its significance as a
place for arbitration and for the maintenance and promotion of
world peace. Situated in The Hague, the building houses the
International Court of Justice, the Permanent Court of Arbitration
and The Hague Academy of International Law. It was here (in 1946)
that the first session of the International Court of Justice was
held. Four guided tours are conducted daily. The Hague is located
approximately 35 miles (57km) from Amsterdam.
