A card and a stamp of the Winter Palace in St Petersburg which is one of Russia's World Heritage sites.
An earlier card had other beautiful stamps. The one in the top left corner is the Church of our Savior on the Spilled Blood (Спаса на Крови) in St Petersburg too. The others I think show the University of Moscow. I can't read the writing but maybe somebody else can.
It may not seem such a faraway place bit it's a faraway dream of mine to take a river trip from Moscow to St Petersburg.
This is a post for Sunday Stamps, now hosted by Violet Sky at "See it on a Postcard!"
