#306 Lithuania 09/06/11

This very nice cover from Lithuania was sent to me by Leonardas from Jonava on June 11, 2009, thank you!

The cover commemorates the 80th anniversary of the “Sėla” museum housed in Biržai Castle (Biržų krašto muziejus SĖLA).

The left stamp commemorates a 16th century fisherman’s boat, the kurėnas. The right stamp is part of the EUROPA set, which was issued on April 25, 2009. It commemorates the famous astronomer Galileo Galilei (1564-1642).
