8. Andorra, Capital dels Pirineus

Sunday, February 1, 2015


Andorra came to my mailbox from fire.maggie who was visiting this country. Andorra, officially the Principality of the Valleys of Andorra is a sovereign landlocked microstate in Southwestern Europe, located in the eastern Pyrenees mountains and bordered by Spain and France.Andorra is a prosperous country, mainly because of its tourism industry, which services an estimated 10.2 million visitors annually, and because of its status as a tax haven, although it is in the process of reforming its tax regime. It is not a member of the European Union, but the Euro is the de facto currency. It has been a member of the United Nations since 1993. The people of Andorra have one of the highest life expectancies in the world and as of December 2014, according to The Lancet, has the highest in the world - 81 years in 2013.

    Ten dolny widok jak dla mnie najładniejszy, być może dlatego, że najbardziej naturalny.
