Vaduz is the capital of the principality of Liechtenstein.
It is the seat of the federal parliament.
The town has about 5,000 inhabitants, most of whom are Roman Catholic, and is located along the Rhine.
Its cathedral is the seat of a Roman Catholic archbishop.
Vaduz is located at 47°8' North, 9°31' East (47.1333, 9.51667).
It has art collections, a postal museum, and a lively tourist industry.
The Curta mechanical pocket calculator was overseen here by the company Contina AG Mauren.
It is thought to have been founded in the 13th century by the Counts of Werdenberg.
In 1322 there is mention of the castle which was sacked by the Swiss in 1499.

Sarolta and I visited Liechtenstein and Vaduz in 1978 and I just could't lay my hands on the photos we have taken at the time.
At the time, in 1978 colour slides were very popular and usually were shown at the end of the trip at the family gatherings.
Technology have changed over the years and I have troubl;e finding a satisfactory way to scan slides to digital images.
Due to the difficulties to scanning slides, I don't even know whether I have slides of Liechtenstein.
So, for now I have to be - and also you - satisfied with my photos from our 2005 visit to Liechtenstein and Vaduz.
