Russia: Murmansk

This card comes from Murmansk, Russia. Murmansk is a port city and the administrative center of Murmansk Oblast, Russia, located in the extreme northwest part of Russia. Although Murmansk's population is in decline—299,148 (2014 est.); 307,257 (2010 Census); 336,137 (2002 Census); 468,039 (1989 Census)—it remains the largest city north of the Arctic Circle.

It's also a special one, because it came with the new russian postcrossing stamp.
