Post for children is one of the accompanying events during the worldwide exhibition PRAGA 2008. It will be located in the central hall of the Industrial Palace at the Exhibition Grounds, and is dedicated namely to children, who can play here various games and competitions oriented on philately. The event Post for children is jointly organized by the Czech Post and the youth committee of the Union of Czech Philatelists.



There will be a postal counter where children can stamp letters. They will have available special children’s post cards and labels similar to stamps issued just for this event, and also a  special postmark dedicated for the Post for children only (not for real postage use). Images on postcards and stamps will feature pictures from children’s art competitions.
