Turnov (Czech Republic, 1971)

Turnov is a town in the northern part of the Czech Republic famous for its long craft heritage related to glassmaking and jewellery.

It is also home to some beautiful medieval buildings such as that shown on the stamp, part of a set celebrating architecture in the then-Czechslovakia.
