Norway: Rock Art of Alta

Yesterday I got six postcards: one from Norway, one from Mexico, my first card from Kazakhstan, one from Finland, one from Portugal and one from Germany.

The card from Norway shows the rock carvings at Alta. The rock carvings at Alta are located near the Arctic Circle and show how humans lived in the Far North in prehistoric times. In 1991 an open-air museum was opened at the site. The Rock Art of Alta is since 1985 on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

With a matching stamp:
EUROPA (from set of two) (issued 17-11-2006)
Tourism (from set of three) (issued 18-04-1996)

Thank You very much Pei!
