Cover & Postcard from Russia!

Today I got a nice cover and postcard from Russia! On the cover, a nice Sochi Winter Olympics stamp featuring bobsledding was used. The card shows a vintage view of Ukraine type torpedo boats near the Peter and Paul Fortress sometime in 1911. The fortress was the original citadel of St. Petersburg and was founded by Peter the Great. In the early 20th century, it was used as a prison. Thanks Philippov!
