Привіт, друзі!

Hello my dear friends! In the last days I have been a bit lazy in updating my blog ^^ Here now goes a card from Ukraine. Thank you Vova!
This card shows the three founders of Kiev: Kyi, Shchek and Khoryv. I have never met any ukrainian people but I think these names are extremly unpronouncable ^^

Привіт, друзі!

A lovely card from Lviv in the Ukraine! Thank you Shot!

Lviv is a city in western Ukraine, that was once a major population center of the Halych-Volyn Principality, the Crown of the Kingdom of Poland, the Habsburg Kingdom of Galicia and Lodomeria, and later the capital of Lwów Voivodeship during Second Polish Republic.

Formerly capital of the historical region of Galicia, Lviv is now regarded as one of the main cultural centres of today’s Ukraine. The historical heart of Lviv with its old buildings and cobblestone roads has survived Soviet and Nazi occupation during World War II largely unscathed. The city has many industries and institutions of higher education such as Lviv University and Lviv Polytechnic. Lviv is also a home to many world-class cultural institutions, including a philharmonic orchestra and the famous Lviv Theatre of Opera and Ballet. The historic city centre is on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Lviv celebrated its 750th anniversary with a son et lumière in the city centre in September 2006.

Lovely card!

Привіт, друзі!

A great card I got from Ukraine! Thank you Lydmila!

Kiev is the capital and the largest city of Ukraine, located in the north central part of the country on the Dnieper River.

Kiev is an important industrial, scientific, educational, and cultural centre of Eastern Europe. It is home to many high-tech industries, higher education institutions and world-famous historical landmarks. The city has an extensive infrastructure and highly developed system of public transport, including the Kiev Metro.

The city prospered again during the Russian Empire’s industrial revolution in the late 19th century. In 1917, after the Ukrainian National Republic declared independence from the Russian Empire, Kiev became its capital. And from 1921 onwards Kiev was an important city of the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic, and, from 1934, its capital. During World War II, the city again suffered significant damage, but quickly recovered in the post-war years, remaining the third largest city of the Soviet Union. Following the collapse of the Soviet Union and the Ukrainian independence of 1991, Kiev remained the capital of Ukraine.

Pryvit druzi!

One nice postcard from the Ukraine! Thank you Iwanka!

It is obvious that the Ukraine is very busy with the EURO right now (although-tomorrow it will be all over 😛 ) Germany lost its game against Italy. I learnd that there was a football curse :O Germany can never win against Italy. How shitty is this?

May be that you all asume that I am into football, but to be honest – I don’t really care 😛

I have to say that now (just Spain and Italy left) my heart beats for Spain, but I wouldn’t cry when Italy won 🙂

Ukraine is an interesting country. In postitiv and in negativ ways. I would like to go there one time!

What do you think? Who is gonna win the EURO? and what do you think about the Ukraine?

I send love folks 🙂

 

p.s.: I thought about publishing all the postcards I received with other pictures 🙂

Here is one from Belarus! Thanks Ivan 🙂
