Postcrossing # 43
Here’s another great addition to my growing collection of map cards. This is from Wim, a Postcrosser from a small Dutch village called Wezep. He has been a member of Postcrossing for over 7 years and has sent almost 2000 postcards already. It would surely be interesting to see the various kinds of postcards that he has received over the years (according to his profile, he has received 1,831 postcards). Thanks, Wim !

St. Michael’s Golden-Domed Monastery is a functioning monastery in Kiev, the capital of Ukraine. The monastery is located on the right bank of the Dnieper River on the edge of a bluff northeast of the Saint Sophia Cathedral. The site is located in the historic administrative Uppertown and overlooks the city’s historical commercial and merchant quarter, the Podil neighborhood.
Thanks to Gayl for this postcard !
Postcrossing # 41 :
“Wycinanki” is the Polish word for ‘paper-cut design. One of the two most well known modern styles of Wycinanki comes form the area of Lowicz. It is characterized by the many layers of brightly colored paper used in its composition.
This lovely postcard is from Przemek and according to him, this particular paper cut design was made by his great grandmother and that her creations are among those that can be found at the Museum of Folk Lowicz.
Thank you, Przemek, this is truly lovely and I admire the fact that you are proud of your heritage and of your culture. Happy Postcrossing !
