Liechtenstein Tricentennial Year

While Liechtenstein is the world’s six smallest country, don’t think that this western European country doesn’t offer plenty of things to see and do. This spectacular 62 square mile country is specifically located in the Upper Rhine Valley of the European Alps, with Austria to its east and Switzerland to the south and west. Although two of the things vacationers come to see here include museums and castles, many people choose to vacation in this area due to the many events that take place here.
