Liudmyla "tari" send this card with the Tarkhankutskyi lighthouse in the Black Sea.

Polona "copacabana" traveled to China not so long ago and for this RR she decided to send a chinese card. This is a view of the Jialing river bank.
"The Jialing River is a tributary of the Yangtze River with its source in Gansu province. The Jialing River is 1119 km long.
The Jialing River's most notable characteristic is its sinuous course. From Zhangwang Miao (Temple of Zhangfei) in Guangyuan to Longdongtuo in Hechuan, the distance as the crow flies is only slightly more than 200 km. However the river itself travels over 600 km. The most tortuous part of its course is between Nanchong and Washeng." - in: wikipedia

"The Castle in Malbork was built in Prussia by the Teutonic Order, a German Roman Catholic religious order, as an Ordensburg (fortified castle of the order). The Order named it Marienburg (Mary's Castle). The town which grew around it was also named Marienburg. Since 1945, when it became part of the nation of Poland after World War II, it has been called Malbork.
The castle is a classic example of a medieval fortress, and on its completion in 1406 was the world’s largest brick Gothic castle. Unesco designated the "Castle of the Teutonic Order in Malbork" and its museum as World Heritage Site in December 1997." - in: wikipédia
The card was sent by Sylwia "sylwiail".
