San Marino is among the smallest countries in the world, only 43 miles in size. More precisely, it is the fifth smallest, but probably the most curious one. This micro-country is a sole survivor of Italy`s former (and powerful we must add) city-state network and it is still holding on as the world`s oldest surviving sovereign country and its oldest republic dating back to 301 A.D. Tucked away inside Italy`s north-eastern region, San Marino is a UNESCO World Heritage Site with lovely things to offer it`s visitors. You`ll find everything from forests, fortress towers, and shopping malls, to medieval markets and Olympic stadiums in this quirky and unique part of the world.
