Slavic Countries RR - Special Group 31 - Kyiv

In some Round Robins, you see people whom you have send a card before. But the nice thing of Round Robins is that it seems that people do more effort to send something you will like. I received last week my second card from Alivemary from Ukraïne and this time via Special Group 31 UNESCO of the Slavic Countries RR. The card shows the St Sophia Cathedral.



Designed to rival Hagia Sophia in Constantinople, Kiev's Saint-Sophia Cathedral symbolizes the 'new Constantinople', capital of the Christian principality of Kiev, which was created in the 11th century in a region evangelized after the baptism of St Vladimir in 988. The spiritual and intellectual influence of Kiev-Pechersk Lavra contributed to the spread of Orthodox thought and the Orthodox faith in the Russian world from the 17th to the 19th century.
