UKRAINE - Residence of Bukovinian and Dalmatian Metropolitans

"The Residence of Bukovinian and Dalmatian Metropolitans represents a masterful synergy of architectural styles built by Czech architect Josef Hlavka from 1864 to 1882. The property, an outstanding example of 19th-century historicist architecture, also includes a seminary and monastery and is dominated by the domed, cruciform Seminary Church with a garden and park. The complex expresses architectural and cultural influences from the Byzantine period onward and embodies the powerful presence of the Orthodox Church during Habsburg rule, reflecting the Austro-Hungarian Empire policy of religious tolerance." -

Thank you so much Dasha for adding this up in my UNESCO collection!
Special thanks for the wonderful stamps!
And in behalf of the Filipino people, I'd like to extend our sincerest GRATITUDE to the UKRAINE government for reaching out when some parts of our country were devastated recently by the Typhoon Haiyan... I could still even recall that ANTONOV landed in Cebu to help...
