On March 30th 1895 Aurel and Klement Lehotzky founded a "stamp club" in the home in Kremnica of their grandfather, the Slovak patriot, historian and city archivist Pavol Kriľko. Later given the name Album, its aim was "to collect postage stamps and save them from oblivion".

The Album club, the first Slovak philatelic organisation, laid the foundations - at the turn of the century - of organised philately in Slovakia. The legacy of the Album league is one that still claims the respect of stamp collectors today.

We trust that the Dunajfila ´95 exhibition will be a testament to the growth and vitality of philately.
