More Russian cards

I'm getting a lot of russian cards and i really don't mind because, as you can see, the last cards are great. These ones were sent by Natalia "sixthsense".

A Moscow view with the river Moscow and the Kremlin.

This is the Church of the Intercession on the Nerl in Bogolyubovo.
Bogolyubovo is one of the Golden Ring cities. "These ancient towns, which also played a significant role in the formation of the Russian Orthodox Church, preserve the memory of the most important and significant events in Russian history. The towns have been called "open air museums" and feature unique monuments of Russian architecture of the 12th–18th centuries, including kremlins, monasteries, cathedrals and churches.
The church is an Orthodox church and a symbol of mediaeval Russia.
The church was commissioned by Andrei Bogolyubsky.
In 1992, the church was added to the World Heritage List as part of the site White Monuments of Vladimir and Suzdal." - in: wikipedia
