Exploring Vaduz, Lichtenstein

Hello guys!
I have another exploration post. This kind of post is my absolutely favorite, I travel a lot lately, so I always do a lot of pictures and then I just share it with you. Whether it serves as a holiday inspiration or you just like the pictures from places you've never been to, or you have been there and you like seeing it as a memory. Let's start talking about one of the smallest states of Europe.

I saw this trip on Slevomat.cz, it is the website where you can get almost everything for a very good price (tours, food, clothes etc.) and I thought about how cool it would be to go to the one of the smallest countries. I read about Lichtenstein before, so I knew that almost half of the country occupies the landscapes and it has the 2nd largest GDP per capita. Lichtenstein is a constitutional monarchy headed by the Prince of Lichtenstein Hans-Adam II.

We went to the capital city of Lichtenstein, Vaduz. The population is 5500 people (the whole Lichtenstein has about 37.000 people) which is really crazy for the capital city, it is more like some random village. The most famous is its Vaduz Castle which is the home of the Prince of Lichtenstein and his family. We wanted to go inside but it was closed. It stands on the hill so there was also a beautiful view of the whole Vaduz from it. Another famous landmark is the Cathedral of St. Florin which is also beautiful from the inside. There is also a statue of the famous musician Josef Rheinberger who was born in Vaduz. Next you can also see the Government House and City Hall which stands in the center of Vaduz.

I also have to mention that we visited the Kunstmuseum Lichtenstein, which is the museum of modern and contemporary art. If you like a modern art, you should definitely visit it, but it is quite small and you walk through it quite fast. Overall I would recommend it because the price was not so high and you can still see some interesting works. I showed you some of my favorite pieces in the pictures above.
Then we continued our trip to Austria and Germany but I will do another post about it. Have you ever been to Lichtenstein?

Thank you for reading!
