National urban parks make up a network of valuable urban landscapes that covers the most important locations with regard to urban culture and nature. There are currently eight national urban parks in Finland.

“I have illustrated many postcards depicting Helsinki. It was a pleasure to draw other cities, too. I visited all the three cities to look for the most suitable themes and angles,” Mänttäri says.
The National urban parks sheet has 30 domestic no-value indicator stamps.
