Cover from the Czech Republic no. 2
On 1 December 2009 when a planning a trip to Brno I had a look at the website of the Czech Post if there were any special cancellations to be had en route. I didn't expect anything, but was lucky. In Tuřany, which is one of Brno's districts, they celebrate the 150th anniversary of opening the local post-office. So I made a detour and had a couple of hastily prepared mail items postmarked with the special cancellation with the text "150 let pošty Brno 20 - Tuřany" (which means "150 years of the post-office Brno 20 - Tuřany") and the coat of arms of the district. On the empty cover sent to myself I used the current 10 Kč Christmas stamp. The cancellation is in use between 1 - 31 December 2009.
