I had arrived in Luxembourg City, the capital of one of the smallest countries, also confusingly called Luxembourg. This tiny country is one of the world’s most well-kept secrets and is little known to tourists despite its rich history and heritage.
Luxembourg, situated in the heart of Europe and surrounded by Germany, France and Belgium used to be called the Gibraltar of the North because of its strategic significance. It is a microscopic country compared to the Malta, for example, both in size and population but, in contrast, is surrounded by beautiful green countryside in natural settings. Its topographical position has made it an attractive target to its neighbours and the great European powers throughout history and they always had their eyes on Luxembourg to grab its outstanding lands. You find here 9 great reasons why Luxembourg City is an amazing place to visit.
