History of Liechtenstein Liechtenstein dynasty, present in the country to this day, was officially created in 1669. By 1200, dominions across the Alpine plateau were controlled by the Houses of Savoy, Zähringer, Habsburg, and Kyburg. Liechtenstein was under the rule of the Counts of Hohenems, however in 1396 Vaduz, the southern region of present-day Liechtenstein, was made subject to the Holy Roman Emperor alone. Origins of country’s royal family begin in Austria, where they possessed substantial assets. However, the family wished for lands that would held without any intermediate feudal tenure, directly from the Holy Roman Emperor himself. Their desire came true in the early 17th century, when Karl I of Liechtenstein was granted the opportunity to purchase a small portion of land Schellenberg and county of Vaduz, giving contemporary Liechtenstein its beginning. The country remained very closely tied to royal family’s home country of Austria, as the ruling princes continued to derive much of their wealth from estates in the Habsburg territories, and they spent much of their time at their two palaces in Vienna. However, economic crisis after the War pushed the princes to form an alliance with its other neighbor, Switzerland, which concluded in customs and monetary union of two countries. When World War II came, Liechtenstein, together with Switzerland remained neutral in the wake of conflict. Majority of royal family’s possessions located in Bohemia, Moravia, and Silesia were taken in order to secure them, but after the war this led to a serious political strife between Liechtenstein, Czechoslovakia and Poland, as the two countries felt robbed of their national treasures. The expropriations given in order to end this conflict included over 618 sq mi of land, notably the UNESCO listed Lednice–Valtice Cultural Landscape, together with several family castles and palaces. Culture For such a small country, Liechtenstein has much to offer! Thanks to its beautiful mountainous landscapes, it is eagerly visited in winter by aficionados of winter sports, who look for the best ski slopes in Europe. However, if it is not your thing, don’t worry! Liechtenstein largest museum, Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein, offers its visitors a grandiose collection of modern and contemporary art. The building itself is worth seeing, as it was designed by famed Swiss architects Morger, Degelo, and Kerez. Liechtenstein National Museum has a permanent exhibition on country’s history, accompanied by additional time-limited exhibitions. The most famous historical buildings in the country are undoubtedly Vaduz Castle, the seat of royal family, Gutenberg Castle, the Red House and the ruins of Schellenberg. Royal family’s ties with their subject are so close that each year on a national holiday, all citizens are invited to the castle of the head of state in order to celebrate. Liechtenstein is a true jewel in the mountainous crown of Europe.
