RUSSIA - Historic Monuments of Novgorod and Surroundings

"Situated on the ancient trade route between Central Asia and northern Europe, Novgorod was Russia's first capital in the 9th century. Surrounded by churches and monasteries, it was a centre for Orthodox spirituality as well as Russian architecture. Its medieval monuments and the 14th-century frescoes of Theophanes the Greek (Andrei Rublev's teacher) illustrate the development of its remarkable architecture and cultural creativity." -http://whc.unesco.org




Thank you so much Olya for this great card! =)
I am just sad that the stamps were hidden by the sticker...
I do not know why they had to put that... =(
