Vaduz Liechtenstein

Who knew that I will be in Vaduz, Liechtenstein which is the capital of one of the smallest countries in the world. This happens to be one of the stops along the way on my European getaway.
So, what does this tiny capital have to offer you may ask?

The capital is located next to a hill and overlooking the city from the cliffs is the iconic castle.
The main city consists of a short stretch of Pedestrian Street with shops, galleries and museum. They all accept Euros and Swiss currency. Do watch out for the postal museum which is free to enter.

Due to the recent borderless rules, it is hardly ever possible to get your passport stamped when crossing between European countries. However, for a small fee, you can get your own Liechtenstein stamp which I did.

Here are some pictures from this tiny city:


The Vaduz Castle On The Hill



The Town Hall (Rathaus)



Parliament



Government Building



St Florin Cathedral


As a summary, this is a good place for a pit stop while you are travelling around one of the bordering countries. I donĂ¢€™t think there is a need to spend a night here unless there is something that you are particularly interested in.

That's all for now!

Cheers.
