Bratislava’s public transport celebrates its 125th anniversary this year. To remember this event, the main postal services administrator in Slovakia, Slovenská Pošta, issued a special stamp on July 31. Its nominal value is €1.55.

The main motif of the 44.1x26.5 mm stamp is the historical Vienna tram GANZ Eg 6, which ran between Bratislava and Vienna in the years 1914-1945. It is printed on a sheet with 50 pieces.

Together with a stamp, an envelope with an FDC stamp and a domicile of the city of Bratislava will be issued. The motif of the FDC stamp is an allegory to the traffic situation in the city around 1914.
