Göteborg 400 år
PostNord is taking the opportunity to release five stamps that illustrate Gothenburg to celebrate Gothenburg’s 400th anniversary. On the stamps we can see Ullevi, Hisingsbron and Röda Sten, among others. The stamps are available at PostNord’s postal agents from January 14th 2021 and can easily be ordered in PostNord’s e-store. The stamps cost SEK 12 / pc. Remember to keep distance when visiting your local postal agent.
100 places, 10 illustrators – One City
The motifs are a result of the city’s residents being able to submit tips on favorite places and buildings in their district in 2020. A selection of these has since been illustrated by local artists living around Gothenburg. The 100 illustrations have been shown at the exhibition 100 Places, 10 Illustrators – One City on Millenniumplatsen outside Stora Teatern August 12th to October 18th 2020. The exhibition is produced by Göthenburgo in collaboration with the district administrations for Gothenburg’s 400th anniversary. As part of Gothenburg’s 400th anniversary, a completely new map of Gothenburg has been created – Göteborgs Jubileumskarta.
