I want to send a card to a friend in Kazakhstan. The address as she once gave me is:

Kostanai city, Abaya 9/1, 1 "B"

and I believe the postal code is 110005 (but may be wrong).

From my looking around online I think the address should be...

Abaya 9/1, 1 "B"
Костанай, Костанайский ОФ
Костанайская область
Kazakhstan (KZ)

Is this correct? What is "Abaya" in Cyrillic writing?

    Abaya must be Абая. And don't forget to change Latin "B" to Cyrillic "Б".

    Additionally, Abay was a Kazakh poet. "Abaya" is a street name in his honor. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abai_Qunanbaiuli

Actually "Abaya" is written in Latin and it is correct. I think it should be like this:

110005 Abaya street 9/1, 1 "B", Kostanay city, Kazakhstan

but your version is correct too
