Jump to navigation Jump to search

Asian Russia, also known as North Asia, is the Asian part of Russia. It is a vast and sparsely populated region stretching from the Arctic to the central Asian deserts. It is divided into three regions:

  • The Urals — One of the wealthiest regions, known for producing many of the resources Russia needs today.
  • Siberia — The largest area in Russia diverse in landscape and yearly temperatures with stunning lakes, world longest rivers, but swampy in most part in the center and north.
  • Russian Far East — One of the coldest regions in Russia, home to the coldest city in the world, Yakutsk.
This region article is an extra-hierarchical region, describing a region that does not fit into the hierarchy Wikivoyage uses to organise most articles. These extra articles usually provide only basic information and links to articles in the hierarchy. This article can be expanded if the information is specific to the page; otherwise new text should generally go in the appropriate region or city article.
