3 marvelous postcards!

Hey everyone! How's your weekend going on? Mine has been good so far. Here are 3 lovely postcards to share with you on this wonderful weekend.

The first postcard was sent from Serbia by postcrosser, Olga. Thank you! It is my first mail from this beautiful country.

This postcard depicts the symbolic Water Tower of Palić. Located 8 km away from Subotica, and 18km away from the border between Serbia and Hungary, the Serb town has a Hungarian ethnic majority and is known for its Palić lake. The stamp franked on the postcard was issued on 09th Jun 2008 to commemorate the 125 years of Orient Express. Next, we have 2 marvelous postcards from Estonia, courtesy of Janek. Thanks again my friend!

They feature the beautiful Angla Windmills and Tammsaare Farm Museum respectively.
The stamps franked on these postcards are from the "Birth Centenary of Eduard Wiiralt" series, issued on 18th Feb 1998.

Eduard Wiiralt (1898 – 1954) was the most distinguished Estonian graphic artist in the 20th century. His famous works include "Hell" (1930–1932), "Cabaret" (1931), "Preacher" (1932), "Negro heads" (1933) and "Claude" (1936). That's all for today. Have a great weekend!
