Germany: Gotha

On 8th October I got nine postcards: four from Germany, two from Slovenia, two from Singapore and one from Japan.

One of the German cards shows various views of Gotha. Gotha is the fifth largest city of the German State of Thuringia. Once was Gotha the scientific centre of the Ernestines and in permanent rivalry with their cultural centre in Weimar. In 1820 the first German insurance was founded in Gotha and in 1875 the Socialist Labour Party of Germany was founded in the city, which later was renamed Social Democratic Party of Germany, SPD.
I got this card a few weeks ago in a cover.


Stamp:
Lily of the Valley (issued 06-05-2010)
with a special postmark about 25 years of German Unity


Thank You very much Katrin for sending me the card in an envelope!
