Fossil on stamps of Luxembourg
officially the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, is a landlocked country in western Europe.
It is bordered by
to the west and north,
to the east, and
to the south.
Its capital, Luxembourg City, is, together with Brussels and Strasbourg, one of the three
official capitals of the European Union and the seat of the European
Court of Justice, the highest juridical instance in the EU.
Its culture, people and languages are highly intertwined with its
neighbours, making it essentially a mixture of French and Germanic cultures.
The repeated invasions by its neighbours, especially
in World War II, resulted in the country's strong desire for mediation
between France and Germany and led to the foundation of the European Union.
Luxembourg issued its first stamps on 15 September 1852.
The stamps were issued in both Belgian and Prussian currency but later issues were issued only in Belgian currency.
