Other Languages RR - Group 27

Today i've received the last card of this group dedicated to the months. Thanks Ana, Ziga and Janek for these great cards :)

This is the card sent by Ana "BraveJ" with the beautiful St. Sava Church, "an Orthodox church in Belgrade, the capital of Serbia, one of the largest in the world. The church is dedicated to Saint Sava, founder of the Serbian Orthodox Church and an important figure in medieval Serbia. It is built on the Vračar plateau, on the location where his remains are thought to have been burned in 1595 by the Ottoman Empire's Sinan Pasha. From its location, it dominates Belgrade's cityscape, and is perhaps the most monumental building in the city. The building of the church structure is being financed exclusively by donations." - in: wikipedia

This is an italian card but sent by Slovenia. Ziga "krepki" read that i like vulcanoes and sent me this Vesuvius card. "Mount Vesuvius is an active stratovolcano east of Naples. It is the only volcano on the European mainland to have erupted within the last hundred years, although it is not currently erupting. Mount Vesuvius is on the coast of the Bay of Naples, about 9 kms (6 miles) east of Naples and a short distance from the shore. It is conspicuous in the beautiful landscape presented by that bay, when seen from the sea, with Naples in the foreground. Mount Vesuvius is best known for its eruption in AD 79 that led to the destruction of the Roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum. It has erupted many times since and is today regarded as one of the most dangerous volcanoes in the world because of the population of 3,000,000 people now living close to it and its tendency towards explosive eruptions. It is the most densely populated volcanic region in the world." - in: wikipedia

And finally another card that fits my wishlist. This one was sent by Janek "ulvikaru". Pakri is a peninsula in Estonia that ends in the sea with a limestone cliff up to 25 metres high. The Pakri lighthouse is the highest lighthouse in Estonia with 52 metres.
