Tomsk, Siberia - RUSSIA
The second official came all the way from the cold Siberia, more precisely form the city of Tomsk (one of the oldest towns in Siberia) and it shows the Chapel of the Iberian Mother of God that stands at Lenina Square (the largest square of the city, that kept its name even after the USSR collapse and where a monument to Lenin still exists). Thank you very much Alyona. This postcard took 19 days to arrive!
The Chapel of the Iberian Mother of God is located on the Lenina square (formerly Bazaar) near the monument to Lenin, on the town of Tomsk in Siberia. The chapel in memory of the Crimean War of 1853-1856 was built on the merchant Petrov, designed by architect Konstantin Eremeev and consecrated on Easter Tuesday 1858. Tomsk chapel was built in the likeness of the Iberian Chapel in Moscow.
