Happy Birthday and Other News

Earlier today, one of the Principality's newspapers, the Liechtensteiner Vaterland, marked their 100th anniversary with a ceremonial act in Schaan. Among the well-wishers for the milestone achievement were no others than Prince Hans-Adam II and Hereditary Prince Alois themselves. Firstly published on April 25th, 1914 as the Oberrheinischen Nachrichten, the name of the newspaper was changed in 1936 and has since grown to become the largest paper in the Principality. Pictures of the event are available at Vaterland, naturally.

Also busy today was the only sister of the Prince, Princess Nora, who attended the the actual tournament of the Special Olympics European Floorball Masters as well as a meeting of the managing director of Special Olympics Europe/Eurasia Mary Davis with Liechtenstein's minister of sports, Marlies Amann-Marxer. Pictures of the tournament are available at Vaterland, as are pictures of the meeting.
