Postcard from Croatia

Zvětšit mapu

A great postcard sent on 6 April 2010, showing an aerial view of Vukovar in eastern Croatia, in Vukovar-Syrmia County (županija). Vukovar has approximately 30,000 inhabitants and is the largest Croatian river port (on the Danube).

The 3.10 kuna stamp was issued on 15 March. together with 3 other stamps, in a series dedicated to the Croatian etnographical heritage (for the previous stamps in this series from 2009 please see my earlier Croatia post). The stamp was issued in 3 million copies and shows a traditional pattern from Međimurje, northern Croatia.

Thank you, Goran!
