Throughout its history, the Principality of Monaco, located on the Cote d’Azur, has repeatedly managed to defend its independence in the fight against foreign invaders. Since François Grimaldi first entered the fortress of Monaco on the evening of January 8, 1297, the ruling dynasty has constantly fought to regain control of this territory, even when it was taken from them by force. As a country with a rich past, Monaco at the same time did not hesitate to implement the necessary changes. When Prince René III ascended the throne in 1949, he had to prove that this tiny state was competitive on the world stage without sacrificing culture and tradition. Today this is obvious, judging by the flourishing of both nature and the country’s economy.
For those who come to rest, there is much to see and do in the Principality. There is a wide range of sports activities such as water skiing and other water sports at the exclusive Monte-Carlo Beach Club, golf at the Monte-Carlo Golf Club, squash and tennis at the Monte-Carlo Country Club, sailing.
Monaco is divided into districts, the most famous of which is Monte Carlo, famous throughout the world for its Casino with elegant Gardens.
