The Russian Federation is the largest country on earth, spanning over seventeen million square kilometers. Russia's topography includes the world's deepest lake and Europe's highest mountain and longest river.
The broad European Plain, or Volga River Plain extends from the Ural Mountains to its western borders. In the far southwest the Caucasus Mountains slice across the land. The country's highest point, Mt. Elbrus, is located here, at 5642m. The central and southern areas include large fertile areas, marsh, steppes and massive coniferous forests. Siberia is a combination of frozen tundra, with rolling hills rising to plateaus, and numerous rugged mountain ranges. The northeast, south-central and southeast areas are covered by a wide variety of mountain ranges. A few on the Kamchatka Peninsula are active volcanoes. Significant rivers include the Volga, Lena, Ob, and Yenisey. Lake Baikal is the deepest lake in the world, at 1620m.
