Kiev, Ukraine

My last card for today comes from Ukraine...

From the back of the card: This is the House with Chimeras, a very special house, built in 1902-1903 by Gorodeckiy. The building was open as Masterpieces of Ukrainian Art in November 2004. Since May 2005 it has been an official presidential residence used for official ceremonies.

Thanks a lot to Marina for sending me this one.

the stamp on the right is from a set of 6 issued in 2008, representing Ukrainian Folk Costumes - The Crimea -  Holiday of the Holy Transfiguration of our Lord Jesus Christ.
The other one is from a set of 3 issued in 2007, representing a candlestick
