From a different part of the world came this card, more precisely from Vladivostok, Russia.
"Vladivostok is Russia's largest port city on the Pacific Ocean and the administrative center of Primorsky Krai. It is situated at the head of the Golden Horn Bay, not far from Russia's border with China and North Korea. It is the home port of the Russian Pacific Fleet." - in: wikipedia

RU-130587, sent by Marina.
The card shows the Far Eastern National University, an institution of higher education located in Vladivostok. Established in 1899, the university was closed in the late 1930s under Joseph Stalin, and reopened in 1956, two years after Nikita Khruschev visited Vladivostok.
On the right corner, there's the Church of Our Lady's Protection.
