Czech Republic: Loreta

Today I got three postcards: two from the Czech Republic and one from Germany. 

One of the cards from the Czech Republic shows Loreta in Prague's Castle District. Loreta is a pilgrimage destination and was built from 1626 onwards.


Stamp:
Centenary of World War I (from set of two) (issued 11-06-2014)
Actually Czechia was a part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire (Central Powers) during the World War I, but in 1916 an exile government was founded and Czechs also fought alongside the Triple Entente at the Eastern front. After World War I Czechia and Slovakia formed the Czechoslovakia.


Thank You very much Klara!
