Postcard from Latvia

A great castle card from Latvia, sent from Riga on 4 March 2009 and received two days later. The picture shows the front of the Birini manor house northeast of Riga, constucted in the 1850s.

The castle stamp is related to the town of Cesis, and was issued together with three others on 7 April 2006 in commemoration of the 800th anniversary of its founding.

Thanks, Jura!
