Liechtenstein, one of the smallest countries in the world

Liechtenstein is a small country located in Central Europe , surrounded to the west by Switzerland and to the east by Austria . It does not have access to the sea and it is a country that stands out above all for increasing the list of well-known tax havens . Economically, the country has experienced a great expansion in recent years.


Located in the Rhine valley , in the Alps , it has a mountainous part that reaches its maximum peak with Grauspitz , located at an altitude of 2,599 meters.


Despite being located in the Alps, Liechtenstein enjoys a pleasant climate , with winds coming from the south that make the temperatures soften. In winter, the country becomes a claim for anyone who wants to practice winter sports such as skiing.
Curiously, it is one of the two countries in the world that does not have access to the sea and that its countries that border it do not have either. The other country that can boast or curse itself for it is Uzbekistan.


Speaking of money, economically the country is a tax haven. This is so because the low taxes of the businesses, has led 73,700 companies to establish their offices based in Liechtenstein. It has not yet fully joined the European Union but its incorporation is expected in the coming years.


As far as demographics are concerned, we can say that the official language is German . Its population, made up of a third of foreigners (mostly Germans, Swiss and Otters), is 100% literate.


Its capital, Vaduz , has just over 5,000 inhabitants . It is an important financial center, as well as being the seat of the Archbishopric of Liechtenstein. It is worth visiting the Prince’s Castle , one of the wonders of the country. It is not surprising that this small city is one of the favorite destinations for Chinese and Japanese.
