Vilnius, Lithuania

Postmarked Vilnius, dated 22 October 2008. An interesting tear-drop shape of stamp, one that I've never seen before.

The Cathedral Square

This card shows the cathedral, its belfry and a monument to the Grand Duke Gediminas. Vilnius is the capital of Lithuania. Once it was geographically more or less at the centre of Lithuania. Nowadays, after centuries of changing borders, it is near the south eastern border. Nearby, it is claimed, is the geographical centre of Europe.

  1. I have a card frim Lithuania with the same stamp. I thought it was quite interesting.

  2. Ah, a fellow PostCrosser! I've never seen any Lithuanian stamps before so I have nothing to go by. Perhaps they are all the same :)


Welcome to my postcard collection! I love hearing what you think of the cards - but spam WILL be deleted.
