Provinces of Mongolia

Mongolia is divided into 21 provinces or aimags (Mongolian: аймаг) and one provincial municipality. Each aimag is subdivided into several districts.[1][2] The modern provinces have been established since 1921. The capital, Ulaanbaatar, is governed as an independent provincial municipality separate from Töv Province, inside which it is situated.[citation needed]
