Yakiv Balaban Museum of Ukrainian Postage Stamps

The museum presents the world’s largest collection of Ukrainian stamps. It was collected by New York philatelist Oleksandr Balaban, whose father Yakiv was born in Vinnytsia. He was a sotnik of the Ukrainian People’s Republic and later emigrated to the United States.

Here you can see the stamps of the Western Ukrainian People’s Republic, the stamps of the Russian Empire, but extinguished by the Ukrainian trident, the 1919 stamp from Pokuttia – one of the eight that have survived in the world and other unique specimens.
