My UNESCO collection is getting bigger with the addition of this St Michaels church, Hildesheim card. Sent by Katharina in Germany who tells me that it is almost 1000 years old and during the celebrations for it they put up scaffolding all around it, sadly.
I already have this UNESCO site from another swap with Anaita but I couldn't resist this card showing the 'Butter Ball' in her albums so swapped for this one too. The notes on the back say, " Firmly poised this butter ball recalls the mythological pranks of Krishna.
Received from Anaita who says that in the eyes of the people living in the city it is a crowded and bustling railway terminus and hardly a UNESCO site and it's sad that they don't pause to admire the beauty.
I love getting cards from Russia and am especially thrilled when they're Vintage Soviet/CCCP/USSR postcards. LOVE them! This one was printed in 1985 to honour the Soviet Armed Force Foundation in October 1917. Thanks Marina!
