We started the day in a very relaxed mode – a train ride from St Moritz to Chur. This was a lovely run over the Grison Mountains but unlike our previous train the windows won’t open so the pictures were not as great. However, the views continue to be amazing and beautiful. Along the way we say a number of small villages, open meadows of green grass, some brown cows and ice capped mountains.
After the train we boarded our couch and headed to the 4th smallest country of Europe – Liechtenstein.
Liechtenstein, officially the Principality of Liechtenstein, is a land locked German-speaking microstate boarded by Switzerland and Austria. It is the fourth smallest country with an area of just over 62 square miles and a population of just 38,000. While we were visiting we did get a stamp in our passport!
Our Insight Tour was a great way to learn about Switzerland and its people and culture. Throughout our adventure, Rob our Tour Manager, did a good job of giving us just enough information to appreciate how the country has evolved over the years and how it has been able to maintain its neutrality for the last 400 years.
