Virgin Komi Forests - Russia

With this card of the Virgin Komi Forests, i'm only missing 2 unesco sites from Russia. I haven't seen any cards from those sites, i guess getting them won't be easy.

This one was sent by Olya "reddew" and this time both card and stamps arrived in perfect conditions.

"The Virgin Komi Forests cover 3.28 million ha of tundra and mountain tundra in the Urals, as well as one of the most extensive areas of virgin boreal forest remaining in Europe. This vast area of conifers, aspens, birches, peat bogs, rivers and natural lakes has been monitored and studied for over 50 years. It provides valuable evidence of the natural processes affecting biodiversity in the taiga." - in:
