Italy: Miramare Castle in Trieste

On Thursday I got three postcards: one from Italy, one from Germany and one from the Australian Antarctic Territory.

The card from Italy shows the Miramare Castle in Trieste. Trieste is a city and seaport in northeastern Italy. It is the capital of the Italian Region of Friuli-Venezia Giulia. Between 1947 and 1954 the city was an independent state under the international protection of the United Nations Security Council.

The Miramare Castle was built between 1856 and 1860 for Austrian Archduke Ferdinand Maximilian. Today it is used as museum.


Stamp:

Thank You very much Chiara!
