Asia-South Ossetia-Tskhinval This postcard is showing a overall view of Tskhinval. The capital of South Ossetia. On maps you will see this as Tskhinvali which is the Georgian spelling. You can see in the picture a burnt out building on the front. Also if you look hard enough a Georgian flag as the picture looks towards the border with Georgia . It is only now that the city is starting to take shape again with many new roofs and repaired buildings.
