Liechtenstein World Fact - Hostel in Iguazu


Liechtenstein Eventhough Liechtenstein is so small that you practically can see it in one day, it is still a visit worth.One thing you might know it for, is having its own post-system. As it lies in the middle of Switzerland and Austria it has some beautiful hills worth hiking, otherwise you can visit the village Vaduz, in fact the capital, that also contains a very graceful Castle, the Vaduz Castle, unfortunatly not open for the public, but just seeing it from the outside and exploring the sourroundings will be worth it.
