Luxembourg


Luxembourg has a population of slightly more than 500,000, with an area of just under 1000 square miles or roughly 2,500 square kilometres. It is one of the smallest nations in Europe, just north of France and between Belgium and Germany.

Welcome to my postcard collection! I love hearing what you think of the cards - but spam WILL be deleted.
