Sporting Events and Stamp Exhibitions Coming to Austria

Austrian Post is the official sponsor of the UEFA EURO 2008, a soccer sporting event set to take place across four cities in both Austria and Switzerland from June 7-29, 2008. To mark this occasion, they have released a sheet of eight stamps illustrating the eight different venues of the event, including the Vienna Ferris Wheel, the Hohensalzburg Castle in Salzburg, the Klagenfurt Lindwurm dragon, and the goldene Dachl in Innsbruck. And the festivities don't end here. With the upcoming WIPA 2008 Vienna International Stamp Exhibition, Austrian Post has issued an additional stamp, in anticipation of the event, depicting St. Stephen's Cathedral.
