Russia and Belgium

January 8, 2010

I decided to start a bookmark collection after receiving these bookmarks from my aunt, in 2009.

The first one is from Russia, and it’s painted by hand. It shows a Russian Cathedral. The architecture of the Russian Cathedrals and Churches is very peculiar, and the more popular ones seem to be The Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood in St Petersburg, and St Basil’s Cathedral in Moscow:

The second one is from Belgium, and it’s hand-made on fabric. It reads Bruges (Dutch: Brugge) which is the capital and largest city of the province of West Flanders in the Flemish Region of Belgium. It is located in the northwest of the country. Along with a few other canal-based northern cities, such as Amsterdam, it is sometimes referred to as “The Venice of the North“. The City Hall on the Burg square can be seen on the last picture of this bookmark.
