Even though ordinary mail has recently given way to electronic methods of communication, parcels and simple paper letters still continue to be sent every day. In order for the parcel or envelope to reach its destination faster, it is necessary to indicate the postal code.
If you need to find out the index of your area, which you for some reason forgot, then just come to the nearest post office. There, in any window, you can find out the index of your area or settlement. In addition, in post offices, the zip code is often written on the wall in large letters. By the way, if you've forgotten your own zip code, look for old letters addressed to you or utility bills. They usually contain both the address and the postcode.
To find out the zip code of the area of your destination, you can visit the nearest post office again. Each such department usually has a large catalog, which contains all the indices in force in our country and not only. However, it will take some time to find the desired index in such a directory. However, you can ask the index from one of the postal workers - now almost all branches are equipped with modern technology, so it will not be difficult for them to look at the index in the database.
Use a telephone directory such as the Yellow Pages. If you need to send something not to a private person, but to a company or company, then in this directory you can probably find an address with a zip code. However, you should not use too old reference books - the index sometimes changes.
Find out the desired index on the Internet. There are several ways to do this. The first is to go to the Russian Post website. This site has a special service in which you need to fill in several fields. In a few seconds, the service will give you the desired index. You can also go to the site "Postcodes of Russia". This site contains all the postal codes of Russia. However, it is updated less frequently than the Russian Post website. However, this site will not help you with foreign indexes. You can do it differently: in the Google search bar, type the city and address you need. In addition to the map of the desired place, the site will give you its index.
