Historic Town of Banská Štiavnica and the Technical Monuments in its Vicinity,Slovakia.

Over the centuries, the town of Banská Štiavnica was visited by many outstanding engineers and scientists who contributed to its fame. The old medieval silver mining centre grew into a town with Renaissance palaces,16th-century churches, elegant squares and castles. The urban centre blends into the surrounding landscape, which contains vital relics of the mining and metallurgical activities of the past.

Postcard from Russia.

Thank you Alexandra for the time and effort you have taken to  draw such a cute drawing on the envelope enclosing such a wonderful B/W card on St Peters-burg Moscow,beautiful stamps and coins.Last but not the least the superb Bookmark which showcase a Russian Hero-
Alexander Nevsky: Russia's Hero -By Soviet artist Pavel Korin (1892-1967)

It was the spring of ’42. The Germans were advancing into Russia from the West, apparently unstoppable, threatening the very existence of the free Russian state. But under the courageous leadership of one man, the Russians earned a decisive victory and eliminated the German threat.

No, we’re not talking about Stalingrad. Turns out, the twentieth century wasn’t the only one where Russia faced a German invasion. The decisive victory in question actually occurred in the thirteenth century, on April 5, 1242, and the courageous leader was none other than Alexander Nevsky.
