Russia: Historic Center of the City of Yaroslavl

"Situated at the confluence of the Volga and Kotorosl Rivers some 250 km north-east of Moscow, the historic city of Yaroslavl developed into a major commercial centre from the 11th century. It is renowned for its numerous 17th-century churches and is an outstanding example of the urban planning reform Empress Catherine the Great ordered for the whole of Russia in 1763. While keeping some of its significant historic structures, the town was renovated in the neoclassical style on a radial urban master plan. It has also kept elements from the 16th century in the Spassky Monastery, one of the oldest in the Upper Volga region, built on the site of a pagan temple in the late 12th century but reconstructed over time."

I received this marvelous postcard from Natalia in Russian Federation. It is a lovely small-sized postcard with very beautiful scenery of Church of St. Nicholas Makry and Church of the Tikhvin Icon of the mother of God, in the historical center of the city of Yaroslavl, which dates back to 17th century.
The two different church stamps are a part of a set of 12 stamps issued as Kremlin Definitives in 2009, while the animal stamp on top-left shows a beautiful fox. This stamp is one of the 15 different stamps issued in 2008 as a set of Russian Animals definitives. The stamp is of 50 kopeks or 0.5 Robels denomination.
Thank you Natalia for such a beautiful postcard and nice stamps!
