Sevastopol - Crimea - Russia - Ukraine . World Heritage Site

Europe-Russia-Crimea-Sevastopol Here is the Eagle Column to commemorates Russian ships deliberately scuppered at the mouth of the harbour in 1854 to make it impossible for enemy ships to pass. It is a popular tourist location. Sevastopol is such a interesting city with lots to see. 

This miniature sheet issued by Russia in 2015. So they are quick getting out stamps showing areas in the former part of Ukraine. This is the world heritage site - The Greek city of Chersonesus . Founded in 422 BC. Here also is the very first Russian Church. 

Europe-Russia-Crimea-Sevastopol A beautiful view of this city from the water. It is a wonderful place just to walk around. So full of history. 

A new set of stamps from Russia. Some of the stamps are embossed. All these postcards have been cancelled in Sevastopol . The Post office is large . Purchased all the stamps in the fantastic Philatelic shop beside the Post office.
