Description:   Russia is the largest country in the world. It stretches from Eastern Europe to the Middle East to China to Japan and finally to the Bering Sea opposite Alaska. Due to its vast size and low population it has one of the lowest populations per km2 density in the world. This, however, is misleading. About half of the country is uninhabited and uninhabitable due to the extreme temperatures. When thinking of Russia you would think of Moscow and St. Petersburg. There is a lot more to Russia then just these two cities.
