Celebrating 600th anniversary: Orlando gets a postal card

By  May 22, 2019

As part of the celebration of the year of Orlando, Croatian Post Office issued a commemorative postal card with the image of Orlando's Column. The postal card, 107th of this kind, carries the name ‘’600th anniversary of the Orlando’s Column’’.

The initiative for the creation of postal card was initiated by the Dubrovnik and Zagreb Philatelists, and the project was realized through the cooperation of the Dubrovnik Tourist Board, the City of Dubrovnik and the Croatian Post Office.

Orlando postal card will be equally interesting to philatelists and the general public, and is available at the central post office in Vukovarska street, at the office in Miljenko Bratos street ("Posta Lapad"), post office at Marko Marojica Street, in Gruz in the office at Obala pape Ivana Pavla II, on Siroka street and in the General Hospital of Dubrovnik.

Unlike regular postal cards, a commemorative postal card on its left side has an illustration to emphasize its importance; its release is determined and final.
