Russia Has the Biggest Landmarks
Russia has some of the world’s largest natural features, which is not surprising given that the country occupies 10% of the Earth’s land surface. The Volga River, which flows from central Russia to the Caspian Sea, is Europe’s longest and is believed to be 2,300 miles long. Lake Baikal in Siberia, thought to be the world’s deepest lake, contains 20% of the world’s drinking water supply. Lake Elton in the Volgograd region is Europe’s largest salt lake, and Dagestan’s Sarykum Dune is Eurasia’s largest sand dune.
