Smallest Countries As Seen From The Sky

2 February 2013

Given that this week Google announced that they've managed to map North Korea, here at Flight Centre, we thought we'd take a bird's eye view of other countries around the world using Google's sophisticated Satellite view.

We've selected some of the smallest countries by geographical size and put them in the spotlight. Boasting only 0.2 square miles, Vatican City is officially the world's smallest country,  followed by the opulent Monaco and the island nations of Nauru and Tuvalu. San Marino, situated within Italy, rounds out the top five.

Guided by curiosity and a sense of adventure, Lyndon travelled independently to 69 countries on six continents. As such, travel is Lyndon's only addiction. He enjoys with equal measure - scaling the peaks of a South American mountain at altitude, attending opera in a European Opera House or hunting for a bargain in an Asian market.
