We stopped over for a night in the small country of Liechtenstein, which is between Austria and Switzerland. 

Never heard of it?  Neither had we.  It is a shame really as it is such a nice country (even though we only saw a few cities) and there was a lot to do.  Basically the country is owned by a wealth family who govern most of its running. They even still live in the castle in the capital, right near the main street of town.  They even have a postage museum.  

Some fast facts:

–          Population = 35,000

–          160 square kilometres

–          Fourth smallest nation in Europe

–          Only country in the world purchased and owned by the same family

–          Prince still lives in the city castle

–          More dentures are produced here than anywhere else
