Embassy of the Principality of Liechtenstein

Liechtenstein is one of the smallest, but richest nations in the world. It’s an alpine country nestled between Switzerland and Austria and a winter destination for skiers. Claudia Fritsche has been the Ambassador of Liechtenstein to the U.S. since 2002, when the European country first opened its embassy in Washington, DC. With a population of only about 37,000, she describes her country as similar to a small town.
