Beautiful winter view of the Spasskaya Tower of the Moscow Kremlin. It was built by an Italian architect in 1491 and originally was crowned by the two headed eagle of the Russian coat of arms, but the Soviet government had it replaced with a red star in 1935.
The Spasskaya Tower is part of the Kremlin and thus a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Kremlin and Red Square were inscribed into the UNESCO list in 1990.

I have grown rather fond of such wonderfully made collage cards. They are so much nicer than the usual multiviews, which I am not really all that fond of. This one here is a gorgeous example of a collage postcard. It shows different images of the American Revolutionary War which took place 1775-1783.
