Two beautiful watercolours displaying attractions from Nizhny Tagil, the native town of my friend Nastya. First, the Museum-Reserve "Metallurgical Ural", and its Monument to the first Cherepanov's Locomotive. The place is also the largest copper and metallurgical factory-turned-museum in Russia.
And the other postcard displays the Square of Tank Builders, with a T-72 tank! The city holds an very important defense industry, founded by the patriarch of the Demidov family. Today, the Uralvagonzavod factory builds the modern T-90 tank.
A photograph of the place, from Wikipedia (link).
Of course, wonderful stamps were included. Nastya always adds stamps that are new to me, and I'm super thankful for that! See them all below.

the 2017 Confederations Cup, for which Chile is already qualified as Copa
Edit: Soviet stamp issued in 1978, remembering Cherepanov's Locomotive! Thanks Nastya.
