National Geographic's political map of Russia and the independent states of the former Soviet Union is one of the most authoritative maps of the region. This Classic style wall map features a bright colour palette with blue oceans and the country's terrain detailed in stunning shaded relief that has been a hallmark of National Geographic maps for over 75 years. Thousands of place names, accurate political boundaries, bodies of water, and major infrastructure networks such as roadways, airports, canals, oil pipelines, and railroads are detailed. Coastal bathymetry is shown with depth curves and soundings, and the boundaries of Northern Sea shipping routes are marked as well. Coverage also includes Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Ukraine, Belarus, Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Afghanistan, Mongolia, North Korea, South Korea, and Japan, as well as portions of Germany, Poland, Iran, Pakistan, and China.
The map can come either printed on heavyweight 160 gsm paper or laminated. The paper version is perfect for framing under glass, and the laminated version is exceptionally hard-wearing as we use a true encapsulation of two pieces of 80-micron gloss laminate.
Alternatively, we can supply this map on 395 gsm HP Professional Matte Canvas using pigment-based inks - making the map highly durable and fade resistant. The exceptional clarity of printing makes this map a stunning addition to any room, and its high quality means that it will provide years of enjoyment.
The easiest way to hang your canvas map is by having wooden hang rollers attached top and bottom with a hanging cord on the top roller, so all you have to do is put a hook in the wall. The hang rails come lacquered in a natural timber colour.
Note: Please allow 10 working days to deliver hang railed maps as they need to be attached by our framer.
