Mongolia is a landlocked country in east-central Asia. It is bordered by Russia to the north and China to the south, east and west. Ulaanbaatar, the capital and also the largest city, is home to about 45% of the population.

Did you know that:
1. You could fit the Netherlands into Mongolia 37 times!
2. Many dinosaur fossils still lie exposed. Tourists pick them up as souvenirs.
3. Snow leopards are native to Mongolia. A quarter of the world's population lives here. (A snow leopard cannot purr or roar).
4. In a country where distances are far and communication can be difficult, it is important to maintain a sense of community. People living in the Mongolian countryside will always have a bowl of warm, salty milk tea ready for visitors.
Eagles are kept as pets by nomads.
