About Russia

Russia is located in North Asia and is the largest country in terms of landmass in the world at over 17 million square kilometers. Russia is situated along the Arctic Ocean bordering both Europe and South Asia.

The Ural Mountains split Russia into western and eastern regions. In the west, the terrain is mostly broad plain with low hills. Then to the east, it’s the West Siberian Plain. The north is characterized as mostly tundra and vast coniferous forest in Siberia and at the Arctic Circle.

Along Russia’s southern border regions, it consists of mostly highland and rugged mountains. For example, Mount Elbrus is Europe’s tallest peak at 5,642 meters high. Russia is also home to Lake Baikal, which is the world’s deepest lake, holding one-fifth of the world’s fresh surface water.
