Greatthings from...

The magazine of the holiday region Lana

How long has it been since you've sent or received a postcard? It's a shame that this small friendly gesture has got a bit lost in modern times... Wasn't it nice, when you were travelling, to think of your loved ones and to send them a message from a place you loved? Wasn't it nice to come home and find a postcard in your letterbox?
A little card just for you, that made you travel, staying at home. It is this small but precious object, of memories, journeys and love, that inspired us when we created this magazine. What you are holding in your hands is in fact a “maxi postcard”, dedicated to you who have come to visit us in these beautiful places. And just like on a postcard from times past we couldn't leave out “Greetings from...”, but you might have noticed they are a bit different here. From the usual“Greetings from...” to our “Greatthings from...”. Because this new postcard from us to you is full of great things: stories, people, places, ideas, inspirations, curiosities and tips, directly from Lana, Tscherms, Völlan, Gargazon, Burgstall and Mount Vigiljoch.
