About Cyrillic Map Collection

Indiana University’s Cyrillic map collection consists of maps in the Cyrillic alphabet. The bulk of this collection is made up of the Soviet Red Army topographic maps, which were produced for defense and economic planning. This collection came to Indiana University from the duplicate map room of the Library of Congress Map Collection in the early 1990s. These maps cover not only parts of Russia and Eastern Europe, but extend as far north as Scandinavia, as far west as Germany and the Netherlands, and as far south as Iran.

Other collection high-lights include maps of Yugoslavia, Belarus, Romania, Poland, and Mongolia. There are also a few individual city maps, such as a reproduction of a map of Moscow from 1739.
