Liechtenstein's flag Flag of Liechtenstein
Liechtenstein is one of the smallest countries in Europe, situated between Austria and Switserland.
Liechtenstein's history is tied with the royal family that held Lichtenstein castle and the lands that form today the principality of Liechtenstein. After being part of the Holy Roman Empire, The Hapsburg empire and the German confederation, Liechtenstein found itself an independent principality that has close connections with both Austria and Switzerland, filing safe like a neutral country.
There are many interesting things to visit in Liechtenstein, especially in the capital Vaduz, where is concentrated all the economic and politic power of the country. Liechtenstein is also a known tax heaven, which is one of the reasons for the wealth that this country enjoys nowadays.
Apart from the see-sides of Vaduz, in Liechtenstein there are several smaller towns and villages, which are perfect spots for relaxation and visits of the natural beauty sites, which this wonderful country holds.
