With looong stamp "Visit France" Europa 2012 (Issued 26-04-2012)featuring five landmarks or monuments representing France.
Ain is a department named after the Ain River on the eastern edge of France. There are four distinctive regions within the department: Bresse, Bugey, Dombes and the Pays de Gex each with their own characteristics.
In the Bresse agriculture and agro-industry are dominated by the cultivation of cereals, cattle breeding, milk and cheese production as well as poultry farming. In the Dombes, pisciculture (fishfarming) assumes greater importance as does viticulture in the Bugey.
