Vaduz, Liechtenstein

Before moving forward to Switzerland, we had a stopover at Liechtenstein, the fourth smallest state in Europe and the sixth smallest country in the world (imagine it's a little bigger than Makati City). Divided into 11 municipalities, its capital is Vaduz and largest town Schaan.

The city center of Vaduz is few meters away from Vaduz Castle. According to Conde Nast, Liechtenstein is one of the countries where you can get a beer with the royal family.

The Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein is the state museum of modern and contemporary art in Vaduz. The building by the Swiss architects Meinrad Morger, Heinrich Degelo and Christian Kerez was completed in November 2000.

There were a few artworks around the area including this bronze sculpture of a nude woman by Colombian painter and sculptor Fernando Botero Angulo and Tre Cavalli by Nag Arnoldi.

Anyway, aside from cafe's, restaurants and museums, there were a few watch shops too. Most of the shoppers were Chinese! China's too rich they have no idea what to do with their money, lol.

How cute are those telephone booths?

Liechtenstein is a nice place but it's too freakin' expensive for me. Couldn't even accept the fact that a cheap ass fridge magnet costs €10!

Our last stop for that day is our 4th home in Europe, Hotel Swiss Star. Watch out for my review on the my next post. :) Bis spöter!
