Ulan-Ude City

Russia Post issued a stamp on 1st September 2016 to celebrate the 350th Foundation Anniversary of Ulan-Ude City.

Ulan-Ude is the capital city of the Republic of Buryatia. The city was founded in 1666 as a Cossack winter settlement of Udinskoye; from 1783, it was called Verkhneudinsk. Later, the town was renamed Ulan-Ude in 1934.

The postage stamp features the coat of arms of Ulan-Ude against the background of the fountain on the Teatralnaya Square and Tsidinzhapov Buryat State Academic Opera and Ballet Theater.
