COVER FROM CROATIA

Croatian Post issued on October, 15th, 2010 a souvenir sheet composed of two stamps titled “Minerals and Rocks“, each one with a face value of 3,10 kn. The “cornerstones” of the new series are two postage stamps depicting agate found near the city of Lepoglava and limestone from the island of Brač. The featured samples are from the mineralogical-petrographic collection of the Croatian Natural History Museum.

The traditional Croatian annual lighthouse stamp series was released on September 14th, 2007 depicting three eastern Adriatic lighthouses: Savudrija, Porer and St. John out in the sea. The 5 kn stamp shows the oldest Croatian lighthouse built in 1818 on the cape Bašanija near Savudrija. It is 36 meters high situated in the vicinity of the Slovenian border, marking the southern entrance to the Gulf of Trieste.

Croatia issued on September 30th, 2008 a series of five stamps with motifs of folk costumes called “Croatian Ethnographic Heritage”. On the postcard, there are two 2008 stamps representing the folk art from Bizovak (0,5 kn) and Ravni Kotari regions (1 kn). On March 15, 2010, Croatian Posted released other four stamps from the same ethnographic series.
