Description: Booklet of 8 stamps, 4 motifs. Discover Mariehamn during the four seasons! The lovely lime tree avenue running through Mariehamn from the western to the eastern harbour, crossing the town square in the centre, has earned the town the epithet “town of the thousand lime trees”. The kilometre-long Esplanade was established after the founding of the town in 1861. The first lime trees were planted in the early 1900s and, today, we count approx. 320 trees.
