300 years of Liechtenstein

This item appears on page 4 of the February 2019 issue.

Liechtenstein celebrates its National Day, Staatsfeiertag, each August 15th, and it's even more special in 2019, as it is the 300th anniversary of the country's independence.

National Day begins with a proclamation by the prince and the president in front of Vaduz Castle, followed by a reception in the castle's garden, which everyone present is invited to. (It is the only day of the year the garden is open to the public.) A day-long fair in Vaduz ends in a fireworks display.
