Early Soviet folding map of the European part of RSFSR, Transcaucasian republic, part of Turkmen Republic and part of Kazakh Republic. Boundaries of administrative divisions were based on NKVD data on August 1, 1929. Instead of the Moscow governorate (until January 1929) and the Central industrial region (January-June 1929), the Moscow region was created. Next to it, the map displays the Ivanovo industrial region that was formed on January 14, 1929. Its center still was named Ivanovo-Voznesensk until 1932. The Nizhegorodsky region was formed in Povolzhye in July 1929 – some years later it was renamed after Maxim Gorky. Apart from them, divisions include the Central Volga Oblast
in Povolzhye, the Central Black Soil Oblast to the South from Moscow. Also, the map witnessed a decade-long period when the Kola Peninsula was a kind of semi-exclave being a portion of the Leningrad region cut off from the rest territory by the Arkhangelsk province (1927-1938).
The map features Kazakhstan as an autonomous republic within RSFSR – it was separated in 1936. Roads and railways (in use and under construction) are indicated along with rivers and canals.
