Postcard from Macedonia
On 1 December 2008 I received this great postcard from Skopje, the capital of Macedonia. It was sent on 24 November and thus reached me in 7 days. It shows the main sights of this city: the Kale fortress, the Orthodox cathedral, and the stone bridge over the Vardar River.
And the total of 5 stamps! The square stamp was issued on 20 December 1996 in a series dedicated to rural architecture. The four definitives are from 2006. The 3 and 6 denar stamps were issued on 30 August and the 4 and 10 denar stamps on 12 Janury. All of them are part of a 6-piece series showing traditional copperware from the 18th to 19th century.
Thanks Ana for this beauty!
