My thanks to the Russian postcrosser who sent this pretty view of the Church of the Ascension, built in 1532 on the Kolomenskoye estate near Moscow and now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The church, a dazzling piece of architecture with a tent-like spire, is thought to have been patterned after the hipped-roof wooden churches of rural Russia. The card came with a fabulous assortment of stamps.
