Happy Birthday!

Birthday boy Prince Nikolaus, who turned 67 today, celebrated his big day today with a celebration for his family's ancestral home country, Austria. Austrians celebrate their country's declaration of permanent neutrality after World War II and its regained status as an independent and sovereign nation - so basically its birthday as well - on October 26, 1955, on exactly that day every year. Two days in advance the Austrian ambassador to Liechtenstein, Maria Rotheiser-Scotti, and the Austrian honorary consul in Liechtenstein, Rita Kieber-Beck, hosted a reception in Vaduz to celebrate the Liechtenstein-Austrian friendship.

Galleries of visuals of the event are located at Volksblatt and Vaterland.
