The World’s Three Smallest Countries



The Vatican is the smallest country in the world, an inland city-state in the highlands of the northwest corner of Rome, Italy. The land area is only 0.44 square kilometers. Because the Vatican is surrounded by Italy, it is called “National China”. The Vatican is in the west bank of the Tiber River in the northwest corner of the Roman city. There are many ancient Roman buildings and living relics.
On February 11, 1929, the Italian government of Mussolini signed the “Latrand Treaty” with Pope Pius XI. Italy recognized the Vatican as a sovereign country and became an independent city in July of the same year. The Vatican nationals are Catholic and a spiritual center of the Catholic Church, attracting millions of visitors every year.


It is the second smallest country in the world with a total area of 2.02 square kilometers. It is surrounded by France on three sides and is also a typical country. The Monaco nationals are extremely wealthy and are among the few countries in the world with the highest per capita income.

The domestic tourism industry is quite developed. Although the land area is small, there are many attractions, including medieval streets and palaces, as well as the famous Monte Carlo Opera House and the Napoleon Memorial. When you come to Monaco, you must go to the spa. After a hard day, you can forget the troubles here.

Overlooking Nauru is an oval coral island with an island length of 6 kilometers and a coastline of about 30 kilometers.There is no river on the island, and the only lake in Lake Budada is also a saltwater lake, and drinking water is imported.
