 GENERAL INFO (Jump to Diary)
The official name is Principality of Monaco, and this city state only covers 2.02 square kilometres. It is  a principality governed under a form of constitutional monarchy. Here are around 39.000 citizens, of which 83% are Christian, 13% have no religion, 3% are Jews and 1% Muslims.
The currency is Euro, worth 7,46 Danish Krone. The GDP is at an impressing $5.424 billion.
The climate is a pleasant Mediterranean climate.

Being the second smallest country in the world, here are not room for many larger mammals beside from humans, but the  the least weasel, the cross fox and the roe deer can still be seen. In the Mediterranean, two species of dolphins are found.
I guess the most interesting plant will be the European fan palm (Chamaerops humilis),  fritillarias (Fritillary involucrata), the sea mallow (Lavatera maritima)  and  the orange lily (Lilium bulbiferum).

Well, I have not been there yet, but one day...
