Luxembourg: Luxembourg City

Yesterday I got my first postcard from Luxembourg.

Luxembourg (officially the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg) is a landlocked country in Europe. It is bordered by Belgium, Germany and France. It is a Benelux country and a member of the EU, of the NATO and of the OECD.

The card shows the central station and the historic centre (since 1994 UNESCO World Heritage Site) of Luxembourg's capital Luxembourg (City). Luxembourg is the biggest city in Luxembourg and a important financial centre. The city is also the seat of the Court of Justice of the European Union and of the Court of Auditors and thus one of the four "capitals" of the European Union.



Stamp:
Eisch Valley (from set of two) (issued 16-03-2010)

Thank You very much Yvonne!
