Russia: Saint Basil's Cathedral-Moscow

On Monday I got two postcards: my first from Estonia and one from Russia. The card from Russia shows the Saint Basil's Cathedral in Russia's capital Moscow. It was built between 1555 and 1561 in orders from Ivan the Terrible. In the background you can see the Red Square being a UNESCO World Heritage since 1990 and the eastern Kremlin Wall.

With many great stamps:
Gifts of Nature-Strawberry (from set of five) (issued 27-08-2003)
(the stamp is aromatic and smells of strawberries)
Let's preserve the nature of the Caspian Sea (issued 09-09-2003)
Christmas (the stamp sparkles) (issued 01-12-2011)
Historical centre of St. Petersburg-Winter Palace (from set of three) (issued 26-04-2013)

Thank You so much for the great card and stamps Irina!
