National Park, Torronsuo 13.9.2010
The new series of postage stamps featuring national parks displays Finland’s most characteristic natural features during the different seasons. The second stamp in this series depicts Torronsuo National Park and it was issued on September 13, 2010. National Park is situated on the Häme Lake Upland and it includes mire that is considered the deepest in Finland with up to 12 metre-thick layer of peat. Large flocks of crane use this thousands-of-years-old mire as flyway stopover site. Torronsuo National Park was established in 1990 and it covers 30 square kilometres.
