From Olga in Russia I got this pretty postcard of St Petersburg. On it you would see the Kunstkamera, which is located on the Universitetskaya embankment. Kunstkamera really does sound like the Afrikaans word for “art room,” which would be kunskamer. I digress. The Kunstkamera was the first museum to be built in Russia by Peter the Great, which was finished in 1727. That is quite impressive. More impressive though is the fact that the museum contains more than 2000 000 items in its various collections! The Kunstkamera actually refers to the building, which hosts the “Peter the Great museum of anthropology and ethnography. Stunning postcard, thanks Olga!
