GTKY friends cards

Cards from 3 of the GTKY girls, Ula, Katy and Kriszti.

Ula has been travelling a lot and one of her trips was to Norway and she sent me this Oslo card.
Oslo is the capital and largest city in Norway. Was founded in 1048 by King Harald III of Norway. The city was largely destroyed by a fire in 1624 and later rebuilt as Christiania by the Danish-Norwegian King Christian IV. Oslo, then an alternative name, became official in 1925.

Katy from Estonia and Kriszti from Hungary had a postcrossing mini-meeting in Haapsalu, a seaside resort town in Estonia, and sent cards from there to the other GTKY friends.
The Haapsalu Castle is a castle with a cathedral founded in the 13th century. It is said that when there is a full moon in August, an image of a maiden, the White Lady, appears on the inner wall of the chapel.
