Bakchsaray- Crimea

Europe-Russia-Crimea-Bakchysaray  This is the Khan's Palace. It was built in the 16th Century  by Russian and Ukrainian slaves under the direction of Persian, Ottoman and Italian architects. Well worth seeing for sure. 

The stamp is from a miniature sheet. This card was posted in Yalta. Interestingly these postcards were printed for Russian Post office in July 2014 . Only a few months since Crimea changed from Ukraine to Russia.
