Olympic Farewell and Other News

Today, Hereditary Prince Alois officially sent off Liechtenstein's delegation for next month's Winter Olympics. Four athletes - namely alpine ski racers Tina Weirather, Marina Nigg and Marco Pfiffner as well as cross country skier Philipp Hälg - will be representing the Principality in Sochi. We'll be having a closer look at Liechtenstein's (rather successful considering the country's size) Olympic history in this week's Friday Flashback. More pictures of today can be found at Vaterland.

In addition, the Hereditary Prince received Canada's minister of foreign affairs, John Baird, for an audience at the Schloss. Mr Baird was on a short visit to Liechtenstein today after participating in the World Economic Forum in Davos during the last few days.  Pictures can be found on the government website and at Volksblatt.

  1. Love the brooch and earrings! The bracelet isn't nearly as pretty.
