San Marino is a European micro-state enclosed in Italy. It is the third smallest state in Europe and the fifth largest in the world. It is also the oldest republic in the world with a constitutional system dating back to the 16th century.

  In February 2015, the country had 32,793 inhabitants, including 5,042 foreigners. There are 12,973 San Marino residents abroad. The Republic is an integral part of the historic Montefeltro region.
The Republic of San Marino is located at the eastern tip of the Apennine mountain range.

The San Marino territory is, for the most part, very hilly. Its area is 60.57 km2. The twelve kilometers separating the northern and southern ends of the country are dominated by the imposing limestone massif of Mount Titano (rock Titan) which rises to 739 meters. The city of San Marino is located at the foot of its southwest side.                                                                                                               [Wikipedia]
