An official from Russia but the card is actually from Abkhazia, an autonomous republic in the northwestern corner of Georgia. This region declared independence in 1999 but only a few countries, most notably Russia, recognize its independence. 

Lake Mzy is one of the great natural attractions of Abkhazia.

Mzy lake is located high in the Caucasus Mountains at an altitude of 2000 meters above sea level. Its size is small, only 100 to 45 meters, but the depth of as much as 40 meters (according to other sources 16 meters). It is formed from the waters of the melting glaciers, so the size and temperature depends on the time of year.
