Liechtenstein - Vaduz - (Schloss) Vaduz Castle.
Schloss (Castle) Vaduz perches high on the slopes above Vaduz, the capital of the tiny landlocked Principality of Liechtenstein. Prince Hans-Adam II is the current resident of the Schloss. The mountain peaks in the background have snow on their jagged edges but the castle itself is free of snow and rests on the slope on a cold but fresh day. Sunlight shines on the side of the old castle walls making this a fairy tale scene of another era of history. The Liechtenstein dynasty dates a royal lineage going back to 1140 under various lines of the Hapsburgs dynasty. Liechtenstein is bordered by the Alpine countries of Austria and Switzerland and is a winter sports resort, though best known as a tax haven, attracting companies worldwide to register their assets in secrecy.Add to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
