Ruins of Tauric Chersonese, Crimeia - UKRAINE - UNESCO #1411

It's been a while since I didn't receive a Maxi-Card and this is absolutely astonishing picturing the Ruins of Chersonesus Taurica and the St. Vladimir's Cathedral in Crimea, Ukraine. Thank you very much Helga, your card is simply amazing and the more I know about Ukraine more I want to visit it (specially Crimea). I already have a card from this site, so the counting remains. This postcard took 5 days to arrive!
 
UNESCO #1411 - Ruins of Tauric Chersonese, Crimeia - UKRAINE
 
Tauric Chersonese and its chora are the remains of an ancient city, founded in the 5th century BCE as a colonial settlement of the Dorian Greeks, located on the Heraclean Peninsula in south-west Crimea. It features several public building complexes and residential neighbourhoods, as well as early Christian monuments alongside remains from Stone and Bronze Age settlements; Roman and medieval tower fortifications and water supply systems; and exceptionally well-preserved examples of vineyard planting and dividing walls.
