PC #56: Bogolyubovo: The Cathedral of the Nativity of the Virgin, Russia

Bogolyubovo is a settlement located in Vladimir Oblast, Russia. This cathedral is a UNESCO World Heritage Site featuring a staircase tower with a passage (12th century) where St. Andrei was murdered. The cathedral itself was built during the 18th century. Thanks to Asya!

The Cathedral of the Nativity of the Virgin

And I love the variety of stamps used! There were stamps that show Russian animals, very used to the cold climate in the vast region, and a long one that depicts a bridge/highway.
