Minsk Railway Station Square, Belarus

Another official, this time from Belarus. If the proportion of officials I've received from Finland recently has been decreasing, then it could be said that the number of cards from Belarus is increasing. Or at least if feels like that; at the moment three out of the 43 officials I've received so far this year are from Belarus.


This card shows the Railway Station Square "Minsk Gate". These two tall buildings are located in front of the terminal. On the back of the card it reads "Building of 1953". I'm not entirely sure what that means, but I'm assuming these buildings could be from 1953?

The stamp actually fits the theme of the card - it shows the Railway Station in Brest! It's from a set of 2 definitives issued in 2002.
