Transilvania, Romania

Another extra cool official card, from not such an every day country again...

RO-17508

This card shows a map of the Transylvanian region, made by Johannes Honter in the 16th Century. Honter was a Saxon humanist and theologian, who was best known for his geographic and cartographic publishing activity, as well as for implementing the Lutheran reform in Transylvania.

As much as I love those colourful maps with cartoons, I also like a lot these with the antique/latin touch...


And a lovely stamp from 2010....from a joint issue with Argentina, showing Mountain lakes
