Postcard from Bulgaria

A nice surprise from Sofia, Bulgaria, with a postcard of St. Sofia Church and St Alexander Nevski Cathedral (in the background), with both featured also on the commemorative stamp of 0.60 leva issued on 25 March 2009 and cancelled by the special first day postmark with the head of Sofia. The stamp (print-run 16,000) celebrates the 130th anniversary of the proclamation of Sofia as capital of Bulgaria. The other, definitive stamp, was issued on 15 January 2004, as part of a series dedicated to night butterflies and shows Noctua tertia.

Thank you, Lilia:-)
