One last card from Russia to finish this set of russian cards.
This is a card from Tobolsk, historic capital of Siberia, sent by "littlesquirrel". It was one of my favorites!
Tobolsk is the only town in Siberia and one of the few in Russia which has a standing stone kremlin (Tobolsk Kremlin): an elaborate city-fortress from the turn of the 17th and 18th centuries. Its white walls and towers with an ensemble of churches and palatial buildings spectacularly sited on a high river bank were proclaimed a national historical and architectural treasure in 1870. - in: wikipedia
Some of the principal monuments in the kremlin are the Cathedral of St. Sophia (1683–1686) and the merchant courtyard (1703–1705), both on the card.
