Luxembourg, not London, has Europe's priciest property

" Luxembourg has the most expensive real estate market of any European capital with an average purchase price of 470,000 euros (564,000 dollars) according to a survey out Tuesday by property firm Era Immobilier."

Congrats then! It's so clean. I don`t know how do gypsies from Serbia get used to the fact they are not supposed to throw garbage around. Or maybe they didn`t get used to it so that was the reason for Luxembourg to throw couple of hundreds of them back in Serbia.

Great pics.

But from the shots city looks empty -- just timing? Luxembourgish is so weird -- 1/2 German, 1/2 Dutch-like, and a few French-like expressions.

Quaint and charming are words that come to mind. And there's even a few newer scrapers in there. Thanks for the tour, very interesting place.

The city was indeed quite empty. There were some German tourists around though.
