Over the course of this weekend the 5th edition of the Special Olympics European Winter Games took place in Liechtenstein. Yesterday and today about 350 athletes from various European nations competed in alpine and cross-country skiing events for the medals. The sporting events were hosted by the Principality's winter sport regions of Malbun and Steg. Already on Friday an opening ceremony including a torch relay, speeches and a procession of the teams of the participating countries took place. As founder of the Liechtenstein branch of the Special Olympics, Princess Nora was a natural guests on all three days.

More picture of the opening ceremony can be found at Vaterland. Volksblatt does seem to have pictures as well though I can't get them to load properly but maybe you have more luck.
