Holidays & Observances in Monaco

Monaco is a small country on the Mediterranean, surrounded on all other sides by France. It is the second smallest independent country in the world with less than one square mile of land. It is one of the richest countries per capita in the world and its citizens pay no income tax, so they enjoy a very high standard of living. Understandably, Monaco has been greatly influenced by France, with a majority of its population having French roots and the official language being French. Christianity is the most practiced religion, and its holidays are the most celebrated holidays. Monaco has few official non-religious holidays and many country-wide Christian holidays.
