The independent Vatican City State is the smallest and one of the most closed countries in the world, established in 1929. It is located on the territory of Rome, Italy, and is ruled by the Pope, the bishop of Rome. Its size is only 0.44 square kilometers or 110 acres. Moreover, it is 0.6 miles or 1.05 kilometers long and 0.5 miles or 0.85 kilometers wide. However, despite its size, the Vatican contains famous worldwide collections of sculptures, paintings, a library with more than one million books, and the same number of manuscripts. Of course, it is worth mentioning its notable Gardens, St. Peter’s Cathedral, the dome with the highest viewing point of the Eternal City, the Vatican museums, and the Sistine Chapel.
