Unesco RR "ORC" - Group 92

Today i've received the last card related to this RR.

This one is from Brazil, it's really beautiful but i already had it :( The card was sent by Valéria "vbformig".
"The Pantanal Conservation Complex consists of a cluster of four protected areas with a total area of 187,818 ha. Located in western central Brazil at the south-west corner of the State of Mato Grosso, the site represents 1.3% of Brazil's Pantanal region, one of the world's largest freshwater wetland ecosystems. The headwaters of the region's two major river systems, the Cuiabá and the Paraguay rivers, are located here, and the abundance and diversity of its vegetation and animal life are spectacular." - in http://whc.unesco.org/en/list/999

This one from Moscow was sent by Nataly "ElSol". "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." - in: http://whc.unesco.org/en/list/545
