Belarus - The Catholic Church of Simon and Alena

I've received this one from Veronika! The postcard shows the Catholic Church of Simon and Alena, a neo-romanesque church, also known as Red Church, located in the Independence Square, at the city of Minsk (Belarus's capital) and built in the beggining of XX century. Simon and Alena are the names of man's children who financed the building; Alena was a very ill girl. Before death, the angel in her dream showed this church; the girl drew it and, in memory of daughter, the father ordered to build the church according her drawing.
