StampNews.com is glad to inform that Magyar Posta marked the largest festival for stamp collectors, Stamp Day, which this year was held between 26 and 28 June 2015 in Tata, by having issued a stamp block with a surcharge and a commemorative set of stamps with two denominations. The new issue was put into circulation on the 26th of June.
Tata (in Latin Dotis and in German Totis) lies on the river Által in northern Transdanubia, where the flat Kisalföld and the Transdanubian Mountain Range meet at the north-western entrance to the Tata valley separating the Gerecse and Vértes mountain ranges. The city of Tata has been inhabited since ancient times, which the archaeological finds suggesting the presence of pre-historic man here support.
The favourable conditions and thermal springs in the locality have attracted man to this spot for thousands of years. Under the kings of the house of Árpád there was a royal estate here. Written records from the 9th century show that this was the site of a Benedictine Abbey.
The name Tata first appeared in a written source in 1221. Tata, the "City of Living Water", was chosen the Hungarian capital of biodiversity in 2010 in acknowledgement of the city's attachment to natural values.
