Dear friends of philately,

The world of philately is a  pleasant place for postal, geography and art enthusiasts. Some people pass through that world only briefly as an enchanted child, while for others, philately has been a  lifelong companion and source of joy. In any case, philately is a  worldwide phenomenon with a  rich history.

During the past century, Prague has already seen this fact demonstrated because of the numerous important international philatelic exhibitions held here. Although there is already a  respectable tradition of international stamp exhibitions in our country, PRAGA 2008 is unique in the fifteen-year history of the Czech Republic because the International Philatelic Federation has given it the status of a  World Exhibition.

The exhibition’s varied program and the presentations of exhibits of collectors from over sixty countries from America to New Zealand in the competition classes promise that the World Stamp Exhibition PRAGA 2008 will be a  major event not only for philatelists but also for the lay public.
