The Seoraksan National Park’s vast expanse, which amounts up to 398 km² in total, boasts one of the most spectacular sceneries in Korea, with its awe-inspiring thirty mountain peaks, including the tallest peak, Daecheongbong. In 1982, the park was listed in UNESCO’s World Network of Biosphere Reserves. In Korea, Pinus Pumila, commonly known as the dwarf stone pine, can be found only in Mt. Seorak. This shrub has leaves that are shorter than those of other types of pine trees, and the branches that grow horizontally. Because the plant grows in a cold, dry environment at a high altitude of 1,500 m above sea level, it is deemed to be particularly vulnerable to the threat of global warming. Thus, Korea National Park Service has started a campaign to protect the habitat of the dwarf stone pine.
 
Our mutual responsibility to protect nature is not bound by borders. With the joint issuance of these commemorative stamps, Korea Post wishes to let the world know of the beautiful nature that can be found in Croatia and the Republic of Korea, and we sincerely hope that the friendship of these two countries will continue to blossom.
