We present some observational results on relativistic jets in Active Galactic Nuclei (QSOs, BL Lacs and Radio Galaxies). The Very Long Baseline Array is observing more than 170 sources at 15 GHz since 1994. More than 1000 images have been obtained to date. This database allows us to study in detail the kinematics in jets at parsec-scales. We present some results on particular sources, especially the findings in the nearby galaxy NGC1052. To close our talk, an overview on future radio astronomical projects such as the Square Kilometer Array is also being presented.
