For Youth 2011 Stamps: Budapest's City Park

Every year Magyar Posta (Hungary Post) releases special For Youth stamps with a surcharge to support stamp collecting by young people.

In 2011 the sights of Budapest's City Park provide the subject for the stamps.

The designs of the miniature sheet show the well-known sights of the City Park in a characteristic graphic composition, which are in the order of the stamps the Budapest Zoo and Botanical Garden, the Funfair, Vajdahunyad Castle, the Ice Rink and the Boating Lake.

The second and fourth stamps in the miniature sheet contain a surcharge. Magyar Posta devotes the proceeds from the surcharge to supporting youth stamp collecting. The amount of the surcharge may not be used to pay for postage.

The silhouette of the building of the Széchenyi Baths appears on the first day cover for the miniature sheet and the design of the special postmark employs a stylised picture of balloons.
