I received my 99th and 100th Postcrossing postcards yesterday. Both of them were sent from Moscow, Russia – one showing a cathedral, and the other a monastery:
The Cathedral of the Dormition in the Moscow Kremlin
Novodevitchly Monastery, Moscow
What lovely postcards.....they open a world of wonder to places that one may never see.
wow, that is a lot of post cards...
those are beautiful. I love your header photo, fall in Sweden.
Congratulations on that impressive feat!
These two are very special. I love the gold minarets...is that the right word for them?
I think the word minaret is only used for the prayer towers on muslim mosques, Ginny. These buildings are Russian Orthodox Christian cathedrals. I think the gilded round roofs would be called domes?
Wow. The monastery is a very impressive structure.
A hundred already. wow! I'm glad you are enjoying it so much.
