Ruhnu, Estonia

A card that came from Janek...last year...

It is from the island of Ruhnu, where you can see two churches. The wooden church dates back from 1644 and is one of the oldest wooden buildings in Estonia. The Lutheran church next to it was built in 1912 and is the place where services are currently held.

here are three lovely stamps...the middle and the right one come from a booklet of 8 stamps issued in 2001 under the title "Fairy tales"...the left one is part of 4 stamps issued in 1992, under the subject "Baltic Sea" (all four stamps represent birds)

Thanks so much to Janek for always picking such interesting stamps! And i hope he is doing ok...been a long while since ive seen him around...
