Slavic Countries RR - Group 31 - Russia

Another card via the Slavic Counties RR from Russia send by Cantalupe.

Inextricably linked to all the most important historical and political events in Russia since the 13th century, the Kremlin (built between the 14th and 17th centuries by outstanding Russian and foreign architects) was the residence of the Great Prince and also a religious centre. At the foot of its ramparts, on Red Square, St Basil's Basilica is one of the most beautiful Russian Orthodox monuments.

Slavic Countries RR - Group 25 - Russia

I received this great card from Russia from Juliet. Due to the fact I participate a lot in the Slavic Countriess RR, I have a lot of Slavic cards in my collection. This is a great addition! It shows the Novodevichy convent! An UNESCO site. I have been to Moscow one year ago and visit this convent as well. It is very beautiful!

The Novodevichy Convent, in south-western Moscow, built in the 16th and 17th centuries in the so-called Moscow Baroque style, was part of a chain of monastic ensembles that were integrated into the defence system of the city. The convent was directly associated with the political, cultural and religious history of Russia, and closely linked to the Moscow Kremlin. It was used by women of the Tsar’s family and the aristocracy. Members of the Tsar’s family and entourage were also buried in its cemetery. The convent provides an example of the highest accomplishments of Russian architecture with rich interiors and an important collection of paintings and artefacts.

An again a Vancouver 2010 stamp!! I'm so happy with those stamps :D

15 March 2010 - LT - 65179 - Varena

It has been a while ago, when I received a card from Lithuana . It has travelled a distance of 1316 kms in 22 days.

The card shows us Klaipeda and the only other card I have from this country, also show us this UNESCO site ;) I just found out that Lithuana is on the 19th place from most send cards :)

Human habitation of this elongated sand dune peninsula, 98 km long and 0.4-4 km wide, dates back to prehistoric times. Throughout this period it has been threatened by the natural forces of wind and waves. Its survival to the present day has been made possible only as a result of ceaseless human efforts to combat the erosion of the Spit, dramatically illustrated by continuing stabilisation and reforestation projects.

The historic centre of Cracow, the former capital of Poland, is situated at the foot of the Royal Wawel Castle. The 13th-century merchants' town has Europe's largest market square and numerous historical houses, palaces and churches with their magnificent interiors. Further evidence of the town's fascinating history is provided by the remnants of the 14th-century fortifications and the medieval site of Kazimierz with its ancient synagogues in the southern part of town, Jagellonian University and the Gothic cathedral where the kings of Poland were buried.

You choose UNESCO whs - Poland

This beautiful card was send by Bodex, from Poland via the you choose unesco wsh tag. It shows the castle of Malbork.

This 13th-century fortified monastery belonging to the Teutonic Order was substantially enlarged and embellished after 1309, when the seat of the Grand Master moved here from Venice. A particularly fine example of a medieval brick castle, it later fell into decay, but was meticulously restored in the 19th and early 20th centuries. Many of the conservation techniques now accepted as standard were evolved here. Following severe damage in the Second World War it was once again restored, using the detailed documentation prepared by earlier conservators.
