EUROPA stamp sends wintry greetings

2017, the theme of the Europe-wide EUROPA stamp series is castles. As Posti recently released a booklet of stamps depicting old castles, Anssi Kähärä's Snow Castle offers a new viewpoint to the subject.

"I could not find the right picture of a snow castle anywhere, so I built a castle myself in Kymijoki, by the village of Iitti," says Kähärä. "I had amazing luck with the shooting conditions, as the evening sunset was absolutely beautiful."

The sheet contains fifteen domestic no-value indicator stamps
