Andorra

Andorra (officially Principality of Andorra, German principality of Andorra) is a small country in the eastern Pyrenees between Spain and France. Andorra was founded on September 8, 1278 and is now the area after the largest of the six European mini-states. It is the only country in the world where two foreign officials together perform the function of Head of State. These are the Bishop of Urgell and the president of France. Thus, it is a dual power. Andorra is one of the so-called tax havens. A considerable number of daily visitors of cheap alcohol and tobacco is due. In the region the name of Andorra was because of two competing radio stations based in Andorra, Andorra Radio and Sud Radio, famous, which were operated until 1981 by foreign licensees, sending ad-supported predominantly French-speaking entertainment programs. Tourism, in particular through the winter sports, today is the most important economic factor.
