The Physical Geography of Russia
Physical Features of Russia
Russia is the largest country in the world
Many different types of terrain
Very long coastlines that have a huge effect on the people living there

Russia is an extremely large country; therefore, it is hard to give it one general climate
The precipitation varies from region to region
Northern and Central Russia near the European border have the most varied climate

Siberia has one of the most extreme climates in the world
Just below the Polar Cap
Extremely cold winter and "cool" summers
Very windy from 30mph to 60mph
