Estonia Issues Europa Postage Stamps
Featuring Postal Vehicles

First Day of Issue: May 2, 2013 - Estonia

Estonia has issued a pair of new Europa postage stamps with the theme Postal Vehicles.

On Estonian and Livonian roads mail was carried on horseback until the middle of the 18th century.

Constant growth in the carriage of mail and passengers caused the need that open-top carriages and covered wagons, called kibitkas, were taken into use.
