Postcard with a matching stamp from the Czech Republic
Sent on Monday 10 November 2008 from a post-office in a shopping centre near Olomouc (zip 77700 - Velký Týnec) is this view of the huge Holy Trinity Column situated in the centre of this 5th largest Czech city. The column was built in the 18th century in commemoration of the victory over a plague epidemic.
Well, and the stamp shows the same column, from a slightly different angle. It was issued on 11 September 2002 together with another stamp in a series dedicated to the Czech UNESCO monuments - the other monument being the Castle of Litomyšl in East Bohemia.
I could not resist, and it was me who sent the postcard;-)
