Sochi - Russia

Sochi is a russian city situated just north of Russia's border with the de facto independent republic of  Abkhazia, on the Black Sea coast.
 Sochi will host the XXII Olympic Winter Games and XI Paralympic Winter Games in 2014, as well as the Russian Formula 1 Grand Prix from 2014 until at least 2020.[9][10] It is also one of the host cities for the 2018 FIFA World Cup. - in: wikipedia
The card was in my favorites gallery and it was sent by Anastasiya. It shows the observation tower in Mount Ahun, the highest point of the coast of Sochi.

The lookout tower on Mount Ahun done in a Romanesque medieval style, though built in the 30-'40s. Height of 30 meters, the tower is made of white limestone. From the tower you can see the magnificent scenery, stunning views here in Sochi and Adler, as well as the mountains and the Black Sea coast. In good weather, people with good eyesight can consider the mountains of Turkey, located on the opposite shore of the sea. The tower is a branch museum of flora and fauna of the Caucasus Reserve. - in:
