My second cover from Russia!

Just a short posting for today. Received this awesome Russian cover from a fellow ICCC member. The lovely stamps franked on this cover belong to the Russian Kremlins definitives series, issued on 1st October 2009. Kremlin is the Russian word for "fortress", "citadel" or "castle" and refers to any major fortified central complex found in historic Russian cities.

The twelve self-adhesive stamps in this set depict Astrakhan Kremlin (1.00 RUB), Zaraisk Kremlin (1.50), Kazan' Kremlin (2.00), Kolomna Kremlin (2.50), Rostov Kremlin (3.00), Nizhniy Novgorod Kremlin (4.00), Novgorod Kremlin (5.00), Pskov Kremlin (6.00), Moscow Kremlin (10.00), Ryazan' Kremlin (25.00), Tobolsk Kremlin (50.00) & Tula Kremlin (100.00).
