I find some of things you find when you travel are so strange to be true. Here we have a small village in top of the hill called Seborga that claims they are a principality (similar to Monaco) and they are independent of Italy, the...More

What an amazing story behind the Principality of Seborga. It would not be overstatement to say that it's independence of Italy is not being taken seriously apart of somewhat 300 residents. It is worth to google the history of Seborga and why it had the...More
