Kyrgyzstan: Bishkek

Yesterday I got two postcards: one from Canada and my first card from Kyrgyzstan.

Kyrgyzstan is a landlocked country in Central Asia. It borders on China, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan. Until 1991 it was a part of the Soviet Union.

The card shows the capital of Kyrgyzstan, Bishkek. Bishkek is the cultural, ecological and political centre of the country. 


Stamps:
Chyngyz Aitmatov (from set of eight) (issued 13-08-2009)
and Definitives (issued 10-05-2008)


Thank You very much Alexander!
