This card deoicting Olavalinna Castle was desinged by my friend Ella. Erik Axelsson Tott began the construction of this castle in 1475 to protect the Savo region. The history of Olavinlinna Castle is one of medieval sword fighting, roaring cannons and normal everyday chores of those days.
The stamp on this maxicard is part of a 5 stamp set issued on the 20th January this year on the theme of Ancient Castles of Finland.
Thank you Ella for this lovely card.
