ANDORRA - FRANCE - EUROPA 2020
Date of issue: 12 May 2020
Since the end of the 18th century, the delivery of mail in the valleys of Andorra was connected to the post office of La Seu d'Urgell, where there was the nearest road from Andorra. This natural dependence and the loss of reputation suffered by the French government in the valleys will generate the opening of the postal route of Andorra-l'Hospitalet.
Between 1837 and 1870, letters to and from Andorra passed through L'Hospitalet-près-l'Andorre in stagecoach via Ax-les-Thermes. A long journey of eleven and a half hours then began to reach Andorre la Vella. The carrier took the letters in the post house at L'Hospitalet and carried them on foot to Andorra via the port of Envalira, at 2,409 m, and Soldeu.
In 1870, the post office of L'Hospitalet opened its doors and the intermediate stopover of Ax was removed.
The visual of the stamp is inspired by an old map showing the postal route which linked L'Hospitalet to Andorra la Vella.

FRANCE - EUROPA 2020
Date of issue: 11 May 2020
The stamp depicts a mail coach Briska on a geographical map as background dating from 1632 and representing the ancient postal routes of France.

Around the 1830s, a new type of travelling carriage appeared on the French roads. The Slavic-sounding name, the "briska", clearly indicated its Russian origin. It was from this primitive vehicle that the “briska” derived. At the beginning of Louis-Philippe's reign, it was greatly appreciated by travellers in a hurry.
In 1838, the administration of the French Post Office, decided to adopt it for the delivery of mail. Improvements were made so that the "briska" could be suitable for postal service. Like its Russian model, this new mail coach kept a large compartment intended to welcome some passengers. Like all postal transport at that time, it had the right to gallop on the road, while private vehicles could only trot. In addition, it had a priority right on the road and at the post houses.

The history of Icelandic postmen dates back to 1776 when King Christian VII issued a decree establishing a postal system in Iceland. The delivery of correspondence in days of old was almost heroic! The first postmen had to travel extensively on foot and horseback through rugged landscape, crossing bridgeless rivers and sometimes even glaciers to bring mail to the most remote areas of the country.

Date of issue: 05 May 2020
In the early XIX century, in Serbia postal network was only used to transmit letters from the state administration. But common people also needed communication, so the profession of private postman appeared in Serbia as a part of the Ottoman Empire.
Professional couriers conveyed the letters on foot. Above the knee, they would fasten a device, which could be heard from afar. The sound from the device kept other people out of the way of couriers. Common law protected these scribes because it was known that they never carried money, but news that provided people with useful information. These professional couriers typically travelled about 40 km a day and did not travel at night.

Date of issue: 04 May 2020
In the territory of Hungary at the time of Louis the Great in the 14th century, guilds established postal routes, which, besides their own correspondence, carried the letters of private individuals, while travelling merchants and craftsmen took the messages and orders of customers to distant places. One of the most well-known postal routes was that of the butchers. Armed drivers escorting cattle from the Hungarian Great Plain to markets abroad carried the correspondence of the cities and their burghers based on individual instructions.

On foot, with a bag over his shoulder, any time of the year, in any weather and any circumstances - he certainly crossed the moutain path every day, almost 60 kilometers to Uzhgorod and back. Fedir Feketa, a native of the Transcarpathian Turia Remeta, a legendary figure and postman - has been delivering mail for thirty years. He has become a true symbol of "friendliness, sobriety, honesty and obedience". Initially, in the 19th century on the facade of the local church appeared a plaque with a bas-relief of the village postman. And in 2003 a monument in the Transcarpathian district of Perechyn was built in his honour.

ANDORRA - SPAIN - EUROPA 2020
Date of issue: 23 Apr 2020
Postal routes have been essential for bringing governments and societies closer together throughout history. Former trade routes marked by posts and resting places enabled couriers and messengers to carry post across the obstacles posed by geography.
In Spain, these routes date back to Imperial Roman times when former Tartessus, Phoenician and pre-Roman routes were used to build their network of roads through which the official post or cursus publicus would circulate.
This issue of the Andorran EUROPA stamp depicts an iconic image of a postman walking along a route on a map, portraying the importance of the routes in the past and how they constitute the basis for the present.

Premium Sheet of 6 stamps, each stamp measuring 49.8 x 33.2 mm. The format of the sheet is 260 x 200 mm (horizontal). Printed in offset. Print run: 180.000 stamps.

The image of the stamp depicts the transportation of mail on a horsedrawn carriage. The designer added colours to the original drawing using the currently used spectrum of postal colours to create a symbolic link between the past and the present postal services in our territory.The beginnings of regular exchange of messages date back to antiquity. It used to be the privilege of the monarch and was rarely available to the public. In the Czech lands, the development of postal services began with the arrival of the Habsburgs

A wagon and a silver coin of the Roman consul L. Saufeius (152 BC) were chosen as motives on the stamps. On the reverse the coin shows Victoria driving a biga, and on the obverse the head of goddess Roma. The coin is located in the Franciscan museum of the Monastery of Saint Anthony in Humac, an area through which the very significant military road Salona (Solin) – Bigeste (Ljubuški) – Narona (Vid) has passed since the first century.

Designer René Wolfinger made the issue appear nostalgic through steel engraving. If you look for ancient postal routes in Liechtenstein, you will inevitably come across the Lindau Messenger. This was a transport service that operated between the trading centres at the time in Lindau at Lake Constance and the Italian city of Milan up to 1826 and carried goods, money and letters.

The Kholmogory postal road was known as early as at the end of the 15th century, but only a section of it to Vologda was in use. The oldest Russian regular postal service between Arkhangelsk and Moscow was launched under the rule of Peter the Great in 1693. The postal stamp shows an ancient postal route: the Kholmogory postroad (Arkhangelsk — Vologda — Yaroslavl — Moscow) and the Europa logotype.
