Polatsk - Belarus

Igor tagged me again on a favorites tag and this time he sent me this beautiful card from Polatsk with Savior and St. Euphorosynye Convent. 

The centre of Christianity during the time of Rus (the first Russian state) lay in the Slavic town of Polotsk. Polotsk is the oldest of the Belarusian cities, founded in 862.
The convent is from the 12th century, founded by St. Euphorosynye.
