Vatican City: A Country AND a City?



Did you know that there is a country that is smaller than Everland? There is a country named Vatican City and many people think Vatican City is just a city. Also, there are people and there are only 520 of them there! Vatican City is a unique country in the world.

As I said, there are only 520 people in Vatican City. They are almost all Catholic. They are priests, nuns, brides, cardinals, country guards and diplomats. Most importantly, there is the pope and people call him Pope Francis. He is like the top of all the Christians, and he is the most important person in the Catholic Church except for Jesus.


On February 11, 1929, Vatican City gained independence by the Treaty of La Teruno. When Italy signed their signature on the paper, Vatican City became a Catholic country. The reason why Italy signed their signature on the paper is that Vatican City became a Catholic country. The reason why Italy signed this treaty is that Italy thought signing this treaty and being close to Vatican City would strengthen their status.

Did you know that the world’s biggest Catholic Church is in Vatican City? This Catholic Church’s name is St. Peter’s Basilica. St. Peter is the first disciple of Jesus. Also, he is the first person to be the bride. The Basilica is a cathedral at the center of the parish. St. Peter’s Basilica was made in 1626, November 18. The reason why it’s called that is because this Basilica was built on the tomb of St. Peter.


I think Vatican City is the country I most want to go to because of St. Peter’s Basilica and its beautiful history, since I am a Christian and I love to take pictures. I can take many beautiful pictures of St. Peter’s Basilica and do a Misa there. That will be great if I could go to Vatican City.
