Vintage Soviet Cards!

So these postcards arrived yesterday with no writing or note to suggest who or where they were from. After deciphering the stamp, though, I eventually realised they were from Osman in Azerbaijan who I arranged a swap with a while ago. With a little deciphering of the cyrillic alphabet on the backs of these cards, I learned they are vintage (from the 1950s I think) and were distributed in the USSR. The first shows an inn in Moscow and the second shows (I think) a picture on display in Kiev Art Museum. If anyone knows anything else about these two images, I’d love to know! I also particularly liked the fact that my address was written with “via Germany” at the end… Not one I’ve seen before!

Edit: I have attached the back of the postcards in case anyone can give any info about them! Thank you!
