I still have a few more officials to upload but i'm done for today. I'm getting sleepy, i'll need to sleep soon. That means this russian official is the last card today. To be continue... tomorrow!!

RU-433359, sent by Liza.

The Moscow's Triumphal Arch is located near the Victory Park Metro Station in Moscow and is
decorated with the coats of arms from the 48 Russian provinces. It was originally built in 1834 to celebrate the victory over France in the war of 1812, but has only been on this site since 1968.

It is a little ironic that this arch resembles the Paris Arc de Triomphe, which Napoleon built between 1806 and 1836 to celebrate his French victories.
