Greece: Kos

Today I got my first postcard from Greece. 

Greece is a country in Southeast Europe bordering on Albania, Macedonia, Bulgaria and Turkey. Greece is a member of the EU, of the OECD, of the NATO and of the UN. The capital of Greece is Athens.

The card shows impressions of the island of Kos. Kos is the third-largest of the Dodecanese islands and is located next to the Gulf of Cos near Turkey. In 460 B.C. Hippocrates was born on Kos.


Stamp:
Olympus (from set of four) (issued 19-07-2013)


Thank You very much Achim and Jutta!
