Pilisvörösvár, Hungary

next card was sent by Peter , showing his hometown of Pilisvörösvár.

Pilisvörösvár is a small city in the Pest County, and here you can see several sites in the city, but unfortunately, i dont know what they are, nor i can give you more info about the place in general....google is really mean sometimes =[

but there are plenty of amazing stamps on the back! the stamp on the very right is from a set of four stamps issued in 2006 commemorating the Centenary of the Budapest Museum of Fine Arts. The one next to it is from a set of 4 definitives issued in 2001, representing chairs (Hungary seems to have a lot of chairs on the definitives). The big stamp next to it is from a set of 7, representing Dutch paintings, with this one showing Antonis van Dyck. The last stamp is from a set of 3 Poets' stamps issued in 1955, with this one representing Mihály Csokonai Vitéz. wow, such a variety of stamps!! I wish I could buy such old stamps here too!! though, on the other hand, Macedonia has been issuing its own stamps for like 20 years, so it is not like i can go back in time that much. thanks a lot Peter!!
