Postcard from the Czech Republic!

Today I got a beautiful panoramic postcard from the Czech Republic! The postcard shows a close-up view of the Prague astronomical clock, a popular landmark in Prague, the country's capital city. It was installed in 1410 and is mounted on the southern wall of Old Town City Hall. It is the oldest astronomical clock still working. It is famous for its unique design and its animated figurines. Used were a variety of beautiful stamps! Most notably, a Postcrossing-themed postmark was used. This unique postmark was only available for a week at the Prague post office. Thanks Michal!
