Luxembourg is a small land-locked country in Western Europe, sandwiched between Belgium, France and Germany. It has less than half a million people in its 999 square miles (2586 km2). It is the only remaining country to be ruled by a Grand Duke. Luxembourg has three official languages: French and German which are the administrative languages, and Luxembourgish which is commonly spoken. English is also understood by most residents too.|
Despite its small size it has powerful influence as a founding member of the EU, NATO and the United Nations. The capital city of the same name is the seat of several institutions and agencies of the EU. Wine-making grapes are grown in the Moselle region on the eastern border of the country.
