Czech Republic - Double Feature

April 25, 2016

I was very lucky to receive two cards from the Czech Republic on the same day.  It isn't a usual thing, but was very nice.

The two cards are both quite nice.

First up, Pavel sent this card with a very informative message on the back.  He sent a great card and a nice stamp too.

He wrote, "Hello, the Reliquary of St. Maurus is one of the most valuable relics of the goldsmith's trade in the Czech Republic.  According to the latest research, the Reliquary of St. Maurus was created between 1225 and 1230. In 1888 the family of Beaufort-Spontin transferred the shrine to their castle Becov nad Teplou.  Reliquary is considered to be the second most important historical artefact in the Czech territory after the Czech Crown Jewels.  Bye Pavel"

The Shrine of St. Maurus
I'm not really sure about the stamp, but I do like the simplicity of the silhouette.


My second card today comes from young Tonik.  He didn't write much, but the back of the card really didn't leave him much room anyway.  The back has a recipe on it.  

He said, "Hello, My name is Tonik. I'm sending the greetings from the Czech Republic.  Best wishes. Tonik."

He also made a note that it was 12℃ and rainy at the time of writing.   Thanks :-)

Apparently this is for Pork with Beer!
 Another interesting stamp.  Thanks Tonik!
