Geography of Sibiria

Siberia spans the area from the Ural Mountain Range in the west to the Pacific island of Sakhalin north of Japan and to the far eastern peninsula of Kamchatka, which is bordering the Bering Sea. While its northern boundary consists of the North Polar Sea - including the island of Novaya Semlia, Franz-Joseph-Land, the Bear Islands, Severnaia Semlia, and the New Siberian Islands - the southern part of Siberia is defined rather arbitrarily by the borders of Kazakhstan, Mongolia, and China. The total area of Siberia comprises 11 mio. km².
