A great cover from Austria!

Many thanks to Dr. Florian for sending this great cover from Austria. On 18th July 2003, Austrian Post issued a set of 2 special stamps entitled "Holidays in Austria" to promote Austria as a travel destination. One of them can be seen here franked on the left of this cover.
The two stamps in this set depict the beautiful Lake Wörthersee in Carinthia and Lake Mondsee in Upper Austria.

Next, we have a beautiful stamp featuring the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Graz historic old town centre. It was issued on 12 June 2009.
Graz's "Old Town" is one of the best-preserved city centres in Central Europe. In 1999, it was added to the UNESCO list of World Cultural Heritage Sites.
This cover was cancelled by 2 first day of issue postmarks and took 18 days to reach Singapore.
