Europe-Russia-Crimea-Simferopol Here is the capital of Republic of Crimea. On maps Crimea is part of Ukraine. But in practical level it is Russia. So hence I put this area as Russia. Arrived into the early hours of the morning . So spend my first night here in Simferopol. This is the Holy Trinity Monastery which is in the centre .
|Posted this card in the main Post office in the city. It was as just by luck next door to my "Hotel Ukrainia " . At this post office did not see a choice of stamps so I had the first two "Crimea " stamps and was sold a R5 Definitive. The Crimea stamps are no longer on sale on Crimea as sold out.|
