Vatican state: arrival and transport


Since 1933 the Vatican State has had its own station with 200 meters of rails on Vatican territory. The last time the station was used by John Paul II to transport people; that was once in 1979 until the next train station in Rome and in 2002 when it went from the Vatican to Assisi. A small department store has been housed in the station since 2003, and the railway line of the dwarf state is only used for freight traffic.

In addition to the train station, there is also a helicopter landing pad in the Vatican called "Eliporto" (Italian) or "Portus Helicopterorum" (Latin).

Otherwise there are around 50 streets in Vatican City that have street names and signs but no traffic lights. The main streets of the Vatican State are Via del Pellegrino and Via di Belvedere. Both streets have their starting point at St. Anna-Tor, the main entrance to the Vatican City.

Vatican City embassies and consulates

Embassy of the Vatican (the Holy See) in Germany

In 1920, based on an agreement between the Holy See and the German Empire, an Apostolic Nunciature was set up in Berlin. As a result, Eugenio Pacelli (9, later Pope Pius XII - nuncio in Munich since 1917 - was appointed the first nuncio at the seat of the imperial government. The building of the nunciature is located in Berlin-Neukölln directly next to the Catholic St. John's basilica.

It should be mentioned that there are Apostolic Nunciatures - as permanent diplomatic representations of the Pope - have existed in German-speaking countries since the 16th century: for example since 1529 at the Imperial Court in Vienna, then in 1585 in Cologne and since 19784 in Munich.


The diplomatic missions of the Vatican do not call themselves embassies, but nunciatures.
