Nestled in between the Austrian and Swiss borders is a tiny landlocked nation known to many as Liechtenstein.
It is a nation where Germany is the official language, where the scenery and landmarks are quite identical to the neighbouring countries, and where the attitudes are like most European countries.
However, Liechtenstein in far from the typical Middle European county.
Firstly, the nation is very exclusive in the way they operate. While Switzerland gets the label of being the worlds neutral country, and the nation which prefers to be its own, Liechtenstein really deserves it more so.
Liechtenstein has its own currency and has refused to join the European Union, despite many attempts by the EU to persuade it to enter.
In addition, they have very strict border security standards set in place despite the peacefulness of the nations surrounding it.
One good thing about the country is that it has never ever been involved in a war, or physical dispute with any other country in its entire 200-year plus existence.
The capital city of the nation is Vaduz, with Schaan another larger city in the region.
For many people, Liechtenstein is their favourite country in the whole world.
These people find it to be a more relaxed, slow paced, and peaceful version of Switzerland.
The geography is breathtaking, the food exotic and rich, while the people are actually very open minded for such a closed nation.
