Postal and Telegraphic Museum of Central Europe

This museum, opened in 1997, reflects the ‘postal culture’ the accustomed means of carrying mail and despatching telegraphs in central Europe, and the wys of life of those employed in such work. It is located in the magnificent Palazzo delle Poste de Trieste, the post office designed by the Habsburg architect Friedrich Setz in 1894. Setz was also responsible for the similarly distinguished post office in Karlsbad (Karlovy Vary), completed in 1903. The museum also has important displays relating to the conveyance of letters and parcels by sea, and to the work of Guglielmo Marconi (1874-1937).
