Postcard from Samara

Nina, who lives in Samara, Russia, a city of the banks
of the Volga River, sends me this postcard from
her home city. The building in the picture is the
Academic Drama Theatre, and the architectural
style is called 'Moscow baroque'. The monument at
the top right is a statue of A. Pushkin, the famous
Russian poet and playwright. At the bottom right,
the monument is to Vasily Chapaev, a distinguished
military commander. He is shown in front of a band
of soldiers, urging them forward.
Thank you, Nina, for a very interesting card!
