A special blast-from-the-past postcard that I dug out of my archives from the no longer extant country of Yugoslavia. It was sent to me by a Serbian friend I met when I lived in China. The card features some of the Belle Époque windows gracing the buildings of the capital, Belgrade. Many thanks to Vesna for this slice of history in my collection!

Left and centre stamps are from a 1996 series on monasteries, thirteenth century Sopoćani Monastery and fourteenth century Bogorodica Ljeviška Monastary, respectively. Stamps on the right featuring manuscript illustration are from 1997.
