The Grand Duchy of Luxembourg (Luxembourgish: Groussherzogtum Lëtzebuerg, French:Grand-Duché de Luxembourg, German: Großherzogtum Luxemburg), is a landlocked country in the Benelux bordered by Belgium, France and Germany, lying at the crossroad of Germanic and Latin cultures. It is the only Grand Duchy in the world and is the second-smallest of the European Union member states. With a successful steel, finance and high technology industry, a strategic location at the heart of Western Europe, more natural beauty than you might expect given its size, and as one of the top three richest countries in the world, Luxembourg enjoys a very high standard of living .
Luxembourg is an attractive country with a green and picturesque landscape of rolling hills and valleys, and many close-packed man-made historical sites - including a relatively large number of castles. The latter betray the country’s historical importance brought about by its strategic position right at the very heart of continental Europe. The national capital, is Luxembourg City (Ville de Luxembourg) , is split into a number of distinct districts, divided by the spectacular gorges of the Alzette and Pétrusse valleys. To the northwest is the delightful old town centre (a UNESCO World Heritage Site), complete with elegant squares, imposing churches, shops, casemates (underground networks of tunnels used formerly for defending the city), and winding, cobblestone streets; to the northeast is the more modern area on the Plateau du Kirchberg, home to Luxembourg's renowned international finance businesses, and to shopping malls and entertainment complexes. Proud of its role as a founding member of the EU, Luxembourg sees itself as playing a prominent position in European affairs and a number of European Union institutions are also based here on the plateau. To the south is Gare, the railway station area containing shops and budget hotel options. Separating the three main upper districts is the Pétrusse Valley, now parkland, and, by the banks of the Alzette River, the lower town districts of Grund and Clausen. The former is home to a number of bars, restaurants and museums; the latter is principally home to Rives de Clausen, the city’s primary nightlife area among the younger crowd.
