Today is my day off, i slept all morning and when i got up i immediately went to check the mailbox. Nice way to start the week, 6 cards, including this official from Leipzig in Germany.

"The St. Nicholas Church has long been one of the most famous in Leipzig, and rose to national fame with the Monday Demostrations in 1989 when it became the centre of peaceful revolt against Communist rule.
The church was built around 1165 when Leipzig, also known as St. Nicholas's City, was founded. It is named after St. Nicholas, the patron saint of merchants and wholesalers, and is situated in the very heart of the city on the intersection of two then important trade roads. It is built partially in the Romanesque style but was extended and enlarged in the early 16th century with a more Gothic style. The interior was remodelled by German architect Johann Carl Friedrich Dauthe in the neoclassical style.
The church has been a Protestant seat since 1539 after the Protestant Reformation, but the Catholic Church is allowed to use it too." - in: wikipedia
