Karaganda, Kazakhstan:

My very limited Russian skills have deduced from the back of the postcard that this is the Palace of Culture, which I assume was a "gift" from Moscow during the Stalin era.

I recently received an e-mail from a Karaganda native, Valery, who confirmed that this is, indeed, the Palace of Culture. If you have any further information, please contact me.

Postcard bought in antique book store in Gdansk, Poland, 1994.
