Stara Planina, Serbia

Whenever i receive a card from this series from Ana, i always wonder why doesnt Macedonia issue such series of cards as well...i simply love them!

It shows several aspects of the Stara Planina Mountain, or if Translated, the Old Mountain. It  is a mountain range in the eastern part of the Balkan Peninsula, on the border between Bulgaria and Serbia. On the top picture you can see Midžor, the highest peak of the mountain at 2169 m while on the bottom pictures you have the waterfalls near Kaina, then the city of Knjaževac  and the Denseflower Mullein (Verbascum Densiforum).
The landscapes are simply beautiful and ive had the chance to see some amazing Macedonian landscapes lately, which just even more frustrates me...we have such beautiful places and no one cares to actually promote them through some postcards.


the stamp is a very cute one, issued in 2008 in a set of two, depicting Children's Folk Costumes.
