San Marino

\"\"The theme chosen by the European Association of postal administrations for 2012 is Europa Visit. The main point of this philatelic issue is tourism.Coloured hands as symbol of the various world’s ethnic groups. Joy and happiness to represent jubilation.The Azienda Autonoma di Stato Filatelia e Numismatica di San Marino gave its feed back to the request of PostEurop with a stamp of Paolo Maniglio.In the centre there is the image of the cableway opened in 1959 and modernized in the 90ies, it is the most attractive symbol for tourists coming from all over the world. A panoramic trip from Borgo Maggiore to the city centre of Città. Beauty, charme and curiosity.

Faroe Islands

\"\"The Europa stamps by Faroe Islands this year give a tiny glimpse of what you could expect from an active holiday on the Faroes. Hikes and trips in the grandiose nature – by land or by sea. To take a peek into the abyss from a sharp mountain-edge on one of the northern islands – or a high speed and extreme cruise below the enormous bird-cliffs of Suduroy – just a couple of the exiting activities that wait for you.


\"\"Austrian Post came up with something really special for this theme: a miniature sheet featuring four popular attractions and, as the stamp\’s main theme, the Ferris Wheel at Prater amusement part.
