Postcard From Finland

Thanks Sari for this very beautiful Olympic postcard. Love it alot but too bad the stamp was canceled by ball pen. I guess life isnt fair after all. LOL. Nway, still love the postcard alot.

The postcard depicts the tower of Helsinki OLympic Stadium. 1952 Summer Olympic Games was held in the Stadium that was inaugurated in 1938. The tower of the stadium, a distinct landmark with a height of 72 metres (240 ft), is open for visitors and offers impressive views over Helsinki.

Besides tat, the stadium was also the venue for the first World Athletics Championships in 1983 as well as for the 2005 World Championships in Athletics.

PS: Thanks Sari and looking forward for more friendly exchanges with u.
