The ‘Stans’ of the former Soviet empire are difficult to map because in the aftermath of liberation, most place names, which the Russian overlords had Russified were changed – and not always to their original names or former spellings. Time has sorted out most nomenclature problems, and we hope that this version is ‘letter perfect’. In this updated edition for both countries, we have obviously tried our best to create a detailed and accurate map.
The big difference between this edition and the previous one is the addition of Uzbekistan to the second side. The two countries seem to share certain common characteristics, as do the other three more easterly Stans, so we feel that combining similarities is better for end users than keeping separate sheets for each country.
The advantage of this new map is that buyers get two country maps for the price of one. We feel that we also benefit, by providing end users with something that they need, affordably. Uzbekistan will continue to be available as a separate title.
We can laminate this map, which will allow you to draw on it in whiteboard marker or apply map dots to locations of interest without permanently marking the map. The lamination also makes the map very durable and protects against tears and stains.
To laminate this map we have taken the folded map and flattened it out before encapsulating it in high-quality 80-micron laminate, so please be aware that there will still be slight fold lines visible.
