This is the other postcard that arrived while we were out of town.  It is from an 11-year-old girl in Russia.

This postcard is of the Resurrection Church on the Debrya in Kostroma, Russia in winter.

The Resurrection Church on the Debrya is located at the entrance to the city of Kostroma, under the mountain and on the bank of the Volga River.  It is an Orthodox sacred place of the Kostroma Region and a monument of the 17th-century Russian artistic culture.

The church's name, Resurrection Church on the "Debrya," means that there was dense, thick forest in ancient times.  Two Debryas, Lower and Upper, were known in Kostroma.  The Resurrection Church was constructed at the foot of the hill, in Lower Debrya.
