The Principality of Liechtenstein is a mountainous tax haven renown for its winter sports. In the summer however, the weather is beautiful and even the souvenir shops are picturesque.
A rest stop on the side of the road looks like a well-tended inn. Liechtenstein was once part of the ancient Roman province of Raetia.
The Liechtenstein dynasty comes from Castle Liechtenstein which the Liechtenstein family possessed from 1140 AD to the 13th century, and from 1807 onwards.
