The Cruiser Aurora

This beautiful piece of postcard was sent by Masha, who lives in Saint-Petersburg, Russia. It shows The Cruiser Aurora in Saint-Petersburg.

This is from Wikipedia : The Aurora (Russian: Авро́ра; English transliteration: Avrora) is a Russian protected cruiser, currently preserved as a museum ship in St. Petersburg. She battled the Japanese Navy in the Russo-Japanese War. One of the first incidents of the Communist Revolution in Russia happened on the Aurora.

... thanks to Masha for the beautiful stamps.
