Almaty Ascension Cathedral

 The Almaty Ascension Cathedral was built between 1904 and 1907.  Although built of wood, it survived the earthquake of 1910, but it went on to become a museum after the Russian revolution.  It was later used by various organisations and even had radio transmitters installed in its belfry.  In 1997 it reopened for religious services. In 2007 it appeared on a coin issued by the National Bank of Kazakhstan.

But the best part of this card, by far, was the message for me, written by 3 year old Almina.

Thank you, Amina.

  1. Oh! I love the message! I have a three year old granddaughter and sometimes she sends me similar messages on the backs of postcards.

  2. The message is great but I was really taken with the beauty of the building. Thanks for sharing.


Welcome to my postcard collection! I love hearing what you think of the cards - but spam WILL be deleted.
