      Liechtenstein National Holiday

    • This national celebration was introduced in 1940 and is closely linked to the birthday of Prince Franz-Josef II on 16th August.
      On this day thousands of locals and tourists attend a large fair held in the capital, Vaduz. The national holiday is officially opened with a ceremony held on the lawn in front of Vaduz Castle, during which the Prince and the president of the parliament make speeches. This is then followed by drinks in the castle gardens and, in the afternoon, the fair in the centre of Vaduz

      Hungary's National Holiday

    • On August 20th, 1000, Saint Stephen I of Hungary (Szent István), founded the Christian Kingdom of Hungary after he vanquished a revolt of the pagan Magyar aristocracy. He imposed Christianity in Hungary, although at times it came at the cost of heavy fighting against Hungarian pagan followers of shamanism.
      On this National Holiday, one can admire the river and air parade on the Danube or the procession that carries the Holy Dextre, the national relic in the neighborhood of St: Stephen's Basilica, where some people often dress in folk costume.

      European Heritage Days

    • How can Europeans be brought to realise that their cultural heritage both unites and differentiates them, and that this heritage is a vehicle for mutual discovery and understanding?

      To take up this triple challenge, the Council of Europe in 1991 launched the European Heritage Days [EHD], an initiative which in 1999 became a joint Council of Europe-European Commission action.

      Throughout Europe during the weekends of September, the European Heritage Days opens up numerous sites and monuments, some normally closed to the public.

      The 49 States party to the Council of Europe Cultural Convention will be actively involved in this initiative, and it is forecast that more than 30 000 sites and monuments participating in the event will have some 20 million visitors.
