Finland: Kvarken Archipelago

On Monday I got three postcards: one from Finland, one from France and one from Japan.

The card from Finland shows the Kvarken Archipelago. The Kvarken Archipelago is a group of around 5600 islands in Gulf of Bothnia. It is continuously rising from the sea and lifts at rates that are among the highest in the World. Since 2000 is the Kvarken Archipelago together with the High Coast in Sweden on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

With a nice stamp:
Archipelago (from set of three) (issued 24-01-2008)
Friends Together (from set of six) (issued 19-01-2015)
with a special postmark from Helsinki

Thank You very much Shaun!
