Serbia

Multiview postcard of Serbia's capital city, Belgrade. A postcard from Serbia eluded me for quite some time, so I am very thankful to Ana who helped cross one off my list and get that little bit closer to the finish line.

The central panel shows the Statue of the Victor, a symbol of the city erected in 1928 to commemorate Serbia's victories over the Ottoman and Austro-Hungarian Empires.

Left stamp is from the 2007 definitive series on flora. Stamp on the right is from "Joy of Europe" series honouring the eponymous event that brings together European children aged 7 to 15 to promote friendship, unity, and cultural exchange.
