Kamianets-Podilskyi - UKRAINE - UNESCO TENTATIVE

Another official card from Ukraine, showing the famous castle of the historic city of Kamianets-Podilskyi (hopefully it will become a UNESCO site). I'm discovering lots of interesting things about Ukraine thanks to POSTCROSSING and I must admit I'm really growing a strong desire of visit it soon, it seems a extraordinary country. Thanks a lot Yana, I really loved your card. This postcard took 16 days to arrive!

The first part of the city's dual name originates from kamin’ or kamen, meaning "stone" in the Old East Slavic language. Famous tourist attractions include the ancient castle, and the numerous architectural attractions in the city's center, including the cathedral of Saints Peter and Paul, Holy Trinity Church, the city hall building, and the numerous fortifications.
