Mongolia is a landlocked country in east-central Asia. It is bordered by Russia to the north and Chinato the south, east and west. Ulaanbaatar, the capital and also the largest city, is home to about 45% of the population. Mongolia's political system is a parliamentary republic.
The area of what is now Mongolia has been ruled by various nomadic empires, including the Xiongnu, theXianbei, the Rouran, the Turkic Khaganate, and others. In 1206, Genghis Khan founded the Mongol Empire, and his grandson Kublai Khan conquered China to establish the Yuan dynasty. After the collapse of the Yuan, the Mongols retreated to Mongolia and resumed their earlier pattern of factional conflict except during the era of Dayan Khan and Tumen Zasagt Khan. In the 16th century, Tibetan Buddhism began to spread in Mongolia and it was accelerated by the unwavering support of the Qing government after Mongolia was incorporated by the Manchu Qing dynasty. In the 1900s almost half of the adult male population were Buddhist monks.
Very nice covers from Mongolia. They usualy use full UPU barcode label, but they decided to keep my letter less bulky so they used small portion of the barcode. I need to try again to get big part of the barcode again. The covers posted on July 08, 2015, i received them on July 27, 2015.
All Mongolia covers travel via Japan. so we can see an extra barcode label on the backside of all registered covers. see the backside of my covers.
