Cantons of LUXEMBOURG
Only a few days after the one I've swapped, I got another card mailed from Luxemburg - it's a official one with a Russian code because the sender is on vacations there. I know that some people don't like to receive officials from countries different of the codes, but I really enjoy it - sending a postcard during a travel (business or pleasure) is celebrating the purpose of postcards, sharing something you see with someone you care. Thank you very much Dmitry for this interesting card. Hope you had lots of fun in Luxembourg. This postcard took 16 days to arrive!
The 12 cantons of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg are areas of local government at the first level of Local Administrative Unit (LAU-1) in the European Union's Nomenclature of Territorial Units for Statistics for Eurostat purposes. They are subdivisions of the three Districts of Luxembourg (Diekirch, Grevenmacher and Luxembourg). The cantons are in turn subdivided into 106 communes.
