Lithuania: Memorial of Martynas Mažvydas

On Monday I got two postcards: one from Lithuania and one from Japan.

The card from Lithuania shows the Memorial of Martynas Mažvydas in Klaipėda. Martynas Mažvydas was a Lutheran preacher and the author of the first printed book in the Lithuanian language. The memorial was unveiled in 1997.

With related stamps:
500 years Reformation (issued 07-01-2017)
Vytis (from set of six) (issued 02-01-2016)

Thank You very much Eva!
