Day Twenty-Two

Sent by: unbendable

Notes:  Here you see the Church of St. Roch in Minsk, also known as the Church of the Holy Trinity.  It was finished in 1864, and closed in the 1930s, when all of the valuables were removed by Soviet authorities.

Notes: This building is a bit more modern than on most of the other Belarus cards I have been posting.  It is actually a cinema house where the sender goes to see movies.  Now, I do occasionally go to the movies, most of the time at one of my local AMC Theatres.  I certainly can't see anyone making postcards showing any of those buildings, so this card struck me as rather unusual.
