A fine example of Best Practice: The philatelic society in the small Slovenian town of Celje brings together philately with the State archives.
On Wednesday, 29.3.2023, at 11.00 pm, the grand opening will take place of the exhibition Philately in archives – Archives in philately, at Zgodovinski arhiv Celje (Historical Archives of Celje), celebrating 100 years of philately in Celje. The exhibition on the 100th anniversary of organised philately in Celje will demonstrate the activities of the local Society since its foundation in 1923.
In the first part of the philatelic exhibition Philately in archives – Archives in philately, visitors will have the opportunity to discover which philatelic material can be found in the collections of State archives in Slovenia. The second part will display a variety of philatelic material (stamps, miniature sheets, illustrated postal cards, and covers) featuring archives, issued by the postal administrations around the world.
