The booklets are designed by M.Vitkovskaya (drawing by T.Dolskaya).

Letter “P” is equal to the air-mail tariff of a letter up to 20 gram abroad.

In 1019 "The Primary Chronicle" first mentioned Brest — one of the oldest cities of present-day Belarus. In 2019 Brest celebrates its 1000th anniversary. 

Brest is a unique city which is a pioneer in many respects: in 1390 it was the first among Belarusian cities to receive the Magdeburg Rights; in 1553 the first Printing House in Belarus was opened there, and in 10 years it published the famous Brest Bible. 

Brest has a special place in the cultural and historical heritage of Belarus: it has many attractions and is liked and actively visited by tourists.
