Marianna sent greetings from St Petersburgh and says I will like the Hermitage Museum. She is right I adored it but it is a long time ago since I visited and never purchased any cards of the interior, in fact I don't remember seeing any, so what a treat when I received her card.  The little marble angel or putto looks as though it could come to life at any moment.

The card came with one of the Kremlin definitives
this one is Ryazan part of the historic centre of the city, sometimes called the pearl of Ryazan and in a link to the postcard the Ryazan Tourist site says. " If you are interested in the glitter and power of Russia, visit Moscow or St. Petersburg, but if you are interested in its soul, visit Ryazan. All guests are greeted here with the special Ryazan hospitality."
