The Shining Stag
Zurich is a jewel of beautiful Switzerland, and home to incredible architecture and legendary stories. One of these stories is the legend of “The Shining Stag”, which protected two faithful sisters on their way to prayer, and resulted in the construction of Zurich’s Fraumunster church. You can even visit the church today and see a fresco by Paul Bodmer of the divine stag in the courtyard, along with imagery of the city's patron saints Felix and Regula.
Share this story of Swiss history with your friends and family around the world with our Swiss-made Zurich postcard. Find our lovingly designed and hand-made artwork displaying the Fraumünster Church and other Zurich monuments on the front of this real Swiss souvenir. The full text of the Zurich legend, “The Shining Stag”, is written in either German or English on the back.
