Minsk, Belarus

I got this postcard from a tag on the postcrossing forum, from Helena in Minsk, Belarus. This is from a set called "11 blue postcards". The author wanted to show Minsk (the capital of Belarus) as an unique city through details which are unseen at first sight. I love this kind of cards; small details such as windows, doors and balconies are often far more interesting than the usual touristy cityviews that most people send and receive.

The bigger stamp was issued in 2009 and shows the building of the CIS Executive Committee. The flower one is from a set of 8 stamps called Garden Flowers, issued in 2008, this one showing a Tulip.
