CHUVASH REPUBLIC - Чувашская Республика — Чувашия / Чăваш Республики — Чăваш Ен

The Chuvash Republic (Russian: Чува́шская Респу́блика — Чува́шия, Chuvashskaya Respublika — Chuvashiya; Chuvash: Чăваш Республики, Čăvaš Respubliki), or Chuvashia (Russian: Чува́шия Chuvashiya; Chuvash: Чăваш Ен, Čăvaš Jen) for short, is a federal subject of Russia (a republic). It is the homeland of the Chuvash people, a Turkic ethnic group. Its capital is the city of Cheboksary
The Chuvash Republic is located in the center of European Russia, in the heart of the Volga-Vyatka economic region, mostly to the west of the Volga River, in the Volga Upland. It borders with the Mari El Republic in the north, Nizhny Novgorod Oblast in the west, the Republic of Mordovia in the southwest, Ulyanovsk Oblast in the south, and the Republic of Tatarstan in the east and southeast. There are over two thousand rivers in the republic—with the major ones being the Volga, the Sura, and the Tsivil—as well as four hundred lakes. Some of the Volga River valley reservoirs are in the north of the republic, and the Sura River flows towards the Volga along much of the republic's western boundary.




My first airmail covers from Chuvash Republic of Russian Federation. The covers posted by my good friend Diana from Cheboksary, the capital city of Chuvashia, on September 05, 2017 and I received them in my hands on October 03, 2017. Unfortunately someone removed one of the stamps sticked on the right side of the envelope during transit.Thank You Dian for the big help.
