The Three C's - Church, Chapel, Castle

Belarus - Mir Multiview

Notes: At first I thought the caption on the back of the card was missing something because it only lists three locations.  Then I realized that the photo on the lower left and the large photo on the right are both of Mir Castle, which is located in Mir, Belarus.  I have posted other cards showing this castle.  The photo on the upper left shows the Troicki Church, which was originally built in the 16th century, but had to be rebuilt after a fire in 1865.  The photo next to it also shows a church, this time a chapel-shrine.  I'm not sure what it is a shrine to, though.
