The town centre of Vaduz
Vaduz is the capital of the Principality of Liechtenstein, the seat of the authorities and the Parliament, and has also been the princely residence since 1939. The Städtle, meaning "small town" as lovely referred to by locals, is the centre of Vaduz.
The name Vaduz has its origins in the Rhaeto-Romanic language and dates back to the time when the Romans were lords of the province of Rhaetia. The first documentary mention dates from 1150. In 1712 Prince Johann Adam of Liechtenstein acquired the County of Vaduz, and in 1719 Emperor Charles VI united it with the other part of the country, the Lordship of Schellenberg, and elevated the area to the Imperial Principality of Liechtenstein. Vaduz became the capital of the entire country. Since 1939, Vaduz Castle has been the permanent residence of the Princes von und zu Liechtenstein.
