National Holiday in Liechtenstein

3701_schloss_vaduzToday is our National Holiday!ย  I did a post last year about it and thought I could post an adjusted version for today. I hope you like it! Have a wonderful day.

The reason why the Holiday is on August 15 was the birthday of the former Prince who died in 1989. In the morning the Prince and his family invite the residents to join them in the park of their castle for a chat, having a glass of wine and snacks. I never attended because to me it feels more like a see and being seen! That’s not my thing to be honest. I have never been there.AMD_0177

But before that “party” the Prince – today it is the heir to the throne – gives a speech on the meadow next to the castle. There also used to be church service with the bishop. But two orย  three years ago they had a disagreement and the bishop refused to do it anymore. I don’t know what the problem wasย since I was never interested in joining that event anyway!images

In the afternoon a fair occupies the whole center of the capital Vaduz. You find all kinds of food, stuff to buy and fun rides for children. Also there are several stages where lots of national and international bands are performing their songs until late at night. During the festivities there is no traffic in that area. Also the public transportation system is for free all day long.LiechtensteinerStaatsfeiertag_2_570x210

The highlight and the magnet for everyone coming to Vaduz is the traditional fireworks next to the castle at 10.00 pm. It lasts 30 minutes or sometimes longer. It is always a spectacular and impressive show! I took a lot of photos last year. Some of them worked out great. 20140815_220200

I know, I could have gotten it when I married. But I did not want to lose my Austrian citicenship which I had to give up. Also my kids have both nationalities through that fact.
