Some fun facts about one of the world’s smallest countries:
Currency: Swiss Franc
Borders: Austria and Switzerland (making it a doubly-landlocked country as Austria and Switzerland are both landlocked)
Interesting political fact: In a constitutional referendum in 2003, the royals won sweeping new powers giving them the power to veto parliamentary decisions and to sack the government.
The Main Square – Peter-Kaiser-Platz
The Parliament of Vaduz is situated here.
Cathedral of St. Florin
It is assumed that what originally was the Chapel of St. Florin dates all the way back to the last quarter of the first centuries.
The palace and official residence of the prince of Liechtenstein, Vaduz castle is situated on a hilltop overlooking the country’s capital.
This is the place to go to if you want to learn more about this little country and if you want to get a stamp in your passport for CHF 3!
If you’re looking for a quick break, the cafe at the Art Museum was a lovely place to get some rest (and even sushi).
Wine enthusiasts can pay a visit to the Prince of Liechtenstein Winery where you can walk through the vineyards and sample the excellent wines. We just drove past it.
The Red House
Another popular place to visit is the Red House which we alas only saw from inside the car.
Worth noting that the drive getting there and back itself was just gorgeous.
