Åland: Sauna Traditions (Joint Issue with Finland)

On 24 May 2017, Åland Post and Posti Finland jointly issued stamps on the theme Sauna traditions. The Finnish sauna is a substantial part of Finnish culture. There are five million inhabitants and over three million saunas in Finland - an average of one per household. For Finnish people the sauna is a place to relax with friends and family, and a place for physical and mental relaxation as well.

In summer 2016, both Postal Administrations collected Sauna Photos from their costumers. A jury selected the most beautiful Photos. The Finnish Post then issued a booklet including the four most beautiful Photos from Finland and an additional winning Photo from Åland. On this minisheet from Åland, you can see the both winning Photos.
