Resurrection Church, Foros, Russia

The Resurrection Church near Foros on the Krimea Peninsula. It is located in a really breathtaking spot, high on a cliff at the Black Sea.  It was commissioned by a local landowner as a thank you for Emperor Alexander III's survival of the Borki train desaster in 1888. Today it is one of the top tourist attraction of the area.
The awesome card was sent by Irina (mindanao) for the Postcrossing Favourites Tag.
