Krasnodar Krai is located in the southwestern part of the North Caucasus and borders with Rostov Oblast in the northeast, Stavropol Krai in the east, and with the breakaway republic of Abkhazia (claimed by Georgia) in the south. The Republic of Adygea is completely encircled by the krai territory. The krai's Taman Peninsula is washed by the Sea of Azov in the north and the Black Sea in the south. In the west, the Kerch Strait separates the krai from the Crimean Peninsula. At its widest extent, the krai stretches for 327 kilometers from north to south and for 360 kilometers from east to west.
My very good friend Dimitry sent me this superb cover from Russian Federal Subject Krasnodar Krai, with Krasnodar region related stamps - the left corner one. The postmark is perfect! My special thanks for sending the perfect cover and also thanks to Holger Kaufhold for the Russian stamps.
