3169 ROMANIA (Bucharest) - Postcrossing Meetup, Bucharest, 9 October 2017 (World Post Day)
World Post Day is celebrated each year on 9 October, the anniversary of the establishment of the Universal Postal Union (UPU) in 1874 in the Swiss Capital, Bern. It was declared World Post Day by the UPU Congress held in Tokyo in 1969. Since then, countries across the world participate annually in the celebrations. The Posts in many countries use the event to introduce or promote new postal products and services. The Romanian postcrossers decided to meet on this occasion (the 32th meetup), and Ovidiu Bucşă edited a special postcard, very successful.
