Planning a visit to the Cyprus Postal Museum

I have some time off at the end of the week and early next week as my parents are coming to the end of their month long holiday in Cyprus so I want to spend some time with them before they fly back to the UK.

We plan to take a trip to Nicosia, hopefully on Friday 25th November and would like to pay a visit to the Cyprus Postal Museum on Ayios Savva Street in Nicosia.

We believe it's fairly close to Ledra Street where we usually park so I'm looking forward to that and my camera will be coming too! Watch this space for photos over the weekend...

While we are in Nicosia we will be crossing the UN green line into the north of the island and hope to collect the more recent north Cyprus stamp issues from 2011.

Keep checking Cyprus Stamps website after the weekend to see our latest additions!

The Cyprus Year Pack - RIP

The Cyprus Post Office does it again!

Whilst we were all eagerly awaiting the traditional Year Pack of stamp issues for 2011 they replaced it - in the form of a yellow hard backed book (A4 size) which contains all the stamp issues and booklets for the year as expected but with additional information and history of each issue.

There are separate pages dedicated to the artist or designer who produced the idea behind each new stamp. 

The NEW look Cyprus stamps Year Pack / Book will be listed very soon on Cyprus Stamps website. Look out for it in the Year Pack category or the Latest Stamp Issue category. 

Currently available at Cyprus Stamps are the Cyprus 2011 Commemorative stamp issues (not including Booklets). Cost to buy £16.50 plus postage as displayed on our site. (See the photo below)
