Lena shared that this is the first postcard that she sent to the Philippines, and the postcard is actually from a limited series edition.

Saint Isaac's Square or Isaakiyevskaya Ploshchad , known as Vorovsky Square between 1923 and 1944, in Saint Petersburg, Russia is a major city square sprawling between the Mariinsky Palace and Saint Isaac's Cathedral, which separates it from Senate Square. The square is graced by the equestrian Monument to Nicholas I.

St. Isaac's Square was laid out during the reign of Tsar Nicholas I. The equestrian monument at its center honors the Russian Tsar. Some of the magnificent buildings bordering the square include the monumental St. Isaac's Cathedral and the magnificent Mariinsky Palace.
