Milky Waterfall | Abkhazia

Abkhazia is a disputed territory, located in the western part of the Caucasus, on the Black Sea coast. Abkhazia considers itself an independent state, called the Republic of Abkhazia.

This status is recognized by only a few countries:  Russia, Nicaragua, Venezuela, Nauru, Tuvalu and Vanuatu. According to most countries it is part of Georgia.

Abkhazia has beautiful and serene landscapes. This waterfall is called “Milky” because the water is white like milk. This postcard was sent from Russia.

In 2012 Russian Federation issued a series of 6 stamps about Russian contemporary art. This stamp pictures a painting by Alexey Sukhovetsky.
