Vilnius, European Capitol of Culture

Zygintas, from Vilnius, Lithuania, sent me this great card
of the beautiful river Neris flowing through his home city.
The city of Vilnius has received the title of European
Capitol of Culture for 2009. This year, Vilnius is celebrating
the Millenium Anniversary of the country's name.
Zygintas also tells me that that the stamp and the April 11, 2009
cancellation (below) are special for the title the city
has received.

Thank you, Zygintas, for the beautiful card, and
the information about your city,
and congratulations to Vilnius for being
awarded this honor!
