The Valka Local History Museum is involved in the project “Tourist Stamp”


Tourist Stamp is a numbered wooden souvenir plague that depicts a place of tourism, culture or nature heritage: towns, museums, architectural monuments, nature reserves, famous mountain peaks, sea resorts, churches and other sightseeing attractions. Tourist Stamp is unique because it can be obtained only after visiting a certain place or object.

Collection of Tourist Stamps invites their owner to take part in the Collectors Game.
