Vaduz is the capital of the Principality of Liechtenstein and can be visited in a weekend.

However, despite being just over 17 square kilometers in Vaduz, there is a lot to see in this small town on the Rhine. It is characterized by numerous museums, a cathedral, and a castle.

The main attraction of the city undoubtely is the Vaduz Castle, the official residence of the prince, located on a plateau from which it is possible to enjoy a splendid panoramic view. It has been owned by the royal house since 1712 and, for this reason, its interiors cannot be visited.

In the center of Vaduz there are some museums, including the National Museum of Liechtenstein. Here you can see some ancient collections that tell the history of the Principality since the Roman era and natural history exhibitions. 

The most interesting, however, is the Kunstmuseum, the museum of modern art, full of exhibitions inside and with a very particular structure outside.

It is also worth visiting the Postal Museum, small but which contains all the national stamps issued up to the present day.

The only church in the city is the Cathedral of San Florin, a wonderful neo-Gothic building.

You can also cross the Alte Rheinbrücke bridge, to find yourself directly in Switzerland, but be careful and always carry your documents with you, in fact Liechtenstein and Switzerland are not part of the European Union.

The Principality of Liechtenstein is one of the smallest states in Europe, located between Austria and Switzerland. It is the Rhine that marks the border with the Swiss territory, while on the eastern front the limit is marked by mountains. 

The standard of living is generally high, making it the third richest country in the world in terms of per person GDP.
