World Nomad Games - 2016
On August 8th the State Committee for Information Technology and Communications of the Kyrgyz Republic puts into circulation a new series of Kyrgyz Express Post postage stamps: "World Nomad Games — 2016".
This is the second time for Kyrgyzstan to receive sportsmen, actors, artists and public figures from all over the world by the Issyk Kul lakeside. The main mission of the World Nomad Games is the preservation and popularisation of peoples’ cultures, through revival and development of the national and traditional sports.
The KEP postage miniatures depict some essential sports and entertaining moments, typical for the nomad games: mounted archery (Jaa Atuu), equestrian wrestling (Er Enish), and the “burning horseman” (Oert Jalymdagan Chabandes).
The series is issued at the initiative and with direct involvement of the Ministry of Culture, Information and Tourism of the Kyrgyz Republic.
