Mongolia, Ulan Bator (Ulaan Baatar)
The name of the Capital has only been given to the city since Soviet Times. In Mongolian it reads as Ulayan Bayatar. But since they shifted to cyrrilic, it got simplified. It is still written in English in two different ways as I have given above. Mongolians are not city folk and even those who live in the city set up a Ger in their back yard for the winter.
