Luxembourg is a small European country, surrounded by Belgium, France and Germany. Its capital, Luxembourg City, is one of the four official capitals of the European Union (together with Brussels, Frankfurt, and Strasbourg) and the seat of the Court of Justice of the European Union, the highest judicial authority in the EU. Its culture, people, and languages are highly intertwined with its neighbors, making it a mixture of French and German cultures.
Luxembourg is mostly rural, with dense Ardennes forest and nature parks in the north, rocky gorges of the Mullerthal region in the east and the Moselle river valley in the southeast. The capital city is famed for its fortified medieval old town perched on sheer cliffs. As a cultural platform, it abounds in venues for artistic expression, such as museums, theatres and concert halls. The cultural offer that makes up Luxembourg is representative of its city dwellers: multilingual, multicultural, creative and eclectic. Indeed, the centre region of the country is home to nearly 170 different nationalities that have chosen to live in or next to a capital at the heart of action
