The Principality of Liechtenstein
is a small landlocked country in Europe. Covering an area of just over 160 sq km (61.7 sq mi), it is one of the smallest country in the world, with an estimated population of just around 35,000 people. Despite its small size, Liechtenstein is the wealthiest German-speaking country and one with the highest gross domestic product per capita in the world.
Liechtenstein is a mountainous country. It is bordered by Switzerland to the west and and south, and by Austria to the east. As both Switzerland and Austria are also landlocked, Liechtenstein is considered doubly landlocked - it is just one of two countries in the world to exhibit this characteristic - the other being Uzbekistan. Liechtenstein is a constitutional monarchy comprising 11 municipalities. Financial services forms the backbone of the country's economy, and this is centered on its capital, Vaduz.

The currency used in Liechtenstein is the Euro (EUR).
Planning your visit to Liechtenstein
Liechtenstein does not issue its own visas; it maintains customs union with Switzerland, whose embassies represent it around the world. Thus the entry requirement to Liechtenstein is the same as to Switzerland.
Due to its small size, Liechtenstein doesn't have an airport, and depend on those in Switzerland. The most convenient international airport is Zürich Airport some 115 km away. From there, you can catch a bus or train to Liechtenstein.
Running along the Swiss side of the River Rhine between Switzerland and Liechtenstein is the Swiss Autobahn A13/E34, with a number of interchanges that exits to the principality. Roads in Liechtenstein are narrow and winding, on account of its mountainous terrain. And speed traps are ubiquitous.
