    Luxembourg is a small country landlocked between Germany, Belgium and France with just over half a million inhabitants. The capital, Luxembourg City, is one of the three official capitals of the European Union and is a host to the European Court of Justice. The city is a melting pot of cultures due to the high influx of immigrants and has three official languages: French, German and Luxembourgish. Most people live in the capital. Luxembourg has many cultural sites with over fifty medieval castles, about seventy art museums, and an array of events and exhibitions.
