Yesterday i've received 2 new official cards, 1 from Switzerland and the other from Serbia.

CH-38681, sent by Catherine.
This a card from Bern, the capital city of Switzerland. The official language of Bern is German. The spoken language is the Swiss German dialect Bernese German.
The historic center of Bern has been featured in the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites since 1983, and Bern is among the world’s top ten cities for the best quality of life.

RS-4948, sent by Sasha.
This is my 1st official from Serbia!
The card is from Oplenac and it shows the St. George's Church.
The church of St. George and the mausoleum of the Karađorđević dynasty was built at the top of Mali Oplenac (Little Oplenac). King Petar I decided to build a church and a mausoleum for both his ancestors and descendants to fulfil a wish of his parents buried in Vienna.
The church is covered with white marble from nearby Venčac mine. Interior is covered in mosaics, with more than 6 million pieces.
