Antholzersee, translated Lake of Antholz in English, is the third largest Lake in South Tyrol. Surrounded by mountain peaks, it is one of the most picturesque places in the Dolomites which we saw.

The Centre of Vaduz was almost empty this summer morning when we visited the capital of Liechtenstein. The main goal was to capture the Castle of Vaduz which overlooked the city and is the official residence of the Prince of Liechtenstein. We then passed this unusual structure, which we later found to be the seat of Landtag of the Principality of Liechtenstein, also commonly known as Landtag of Liechtenstein – the Legislative Branch of the Government.

Unfortunately, the woodlands from the Tertiary period are very rare to find around the world.
