A European crossroads par excellence, the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg is an ode to Europe, in all that is most perfect about it. Although it is one of the smallest countries in the European Union, Luxembourg is nonetheless a resplendent nation throughout the world.

A capital city of contrasts, Luxembourg is also a city of tranquility and cultural refinement as demonstrated by its many museums or the impressive Luxembourg Philharmonic Society.
