Brčko, (BiH)

A surprise card that came from Goran...he always send me some nice surprises....

this is my first one from Brčko. and yeah, well, since my knowledge about it is not something i can be proud of, i just wanted to take some information from Wikipedia or other sites, and in case something was wrong, i hoped that Goran would correct me :) I honestly dont take criticism easily, and i hate being wrong and ignorant, but then, how can i otherwise learn something unless my mistakes are pointed out? The only problem is that the majority of articles out there revolve around the war and politics and i can say they all have some biased tendencies...they all mention the Dayton Peace accords, they all speak of "all that could have been", they all put the blame on someone....there is no one nice post describing Brčko from a touristy point of view...so im pretty stuck...and frankly, the things i could tell about Brčko are the ones i recall from years ago, when this was a hot issue due to the war going and and being that they talked about it on TV all the time...but thats pretty much it....


well, at least i know something about the stamp....comes from a set of two commemorative stamps issued in 2008, for the edition of Monasteries of Repblika Srpska - Tvrdos and Gračanica. On this stamp Tvrdos is featured. And I havent been here, but i have visited the other monastery of Gračanica actually....

Brčko isn't Republika Srpska. Brčko is District of Bosnia and Hercegovina.
