Russian Orthodox Church of Saint Nicholas, Gifhorn, Germany

This is really interesting. I received this card as an official Postcrossing card from Russia and first thought it was a Russian church in Russia. But no ! It is located in the German city of Gifhorn. It is a copy of a Russian stave church and was erected in the International Wind- and Watermill Museum. It was consecrated in 1995 by the Patriarch of Moscow, Alexijj II.
