Luxembourg is known as the safest city in the world. According to the list from 2011. Though it seemed really strange to me, that in such a safe city there are so many beggars and homeless. Especially beggars who is literally pushing you to share some cash.
Nevertheless it's one of the smallest countries in Europe with population around 500 thousands.

You can cross the country walking in several hours from west to east or in one hour by car from north to south. Nevertheless there is quite a number of interesting places to visit. For example Notre-Dame Cathedral in Luxembourg

A lot of Luxembourg citizens went to the army during World War I. This is why the Golden Lady (Gëlle Fra) stays here. Unfortunately it was completely dismantled during World War II and later recontructed from the parts which survived the War.

On the central square there was a market. I was here when they already were packing, though it was just 2PM. How they earn the money if they pack the stuff this early? (:

Grand Dukes of Luxembourg residence is just next to the square. Just a single soldier guards the residence. It has to be really safe down here..

Though, a bit later there marched a troop of soldiers and disappeared in uknown direction. The first impression was like it was an entire Army of Luxembourg (:

A long time ago Luxembourg was built as a good fortified castle (or even a fortress). Though during the time the fortress was disassembled. Now only about 10% left from the original walls. Even the remainer part makes an impression.

It’s a bit crowdy in the city center. Too many tourists and street musicians: from big orchestra to russian duets (or at least russian-speaking singing guys)

It is quite clean and civil. Like in most of Europe people disappear from streets in the evening. The city calms down and peacefully falls asleep. Only in train station area you can still hear some drunk voices loudly arguing time to time.
