Mongolia - Geography
By Ekaterina Zhdanova-Redman
  

1     Try to imagine a very old country. Imagine a country older than most others in the world. This country is in a strange and beautiful place. It is filled with very old and beautiful temples, special animals, and a desert that isn't really a desert. And this country is even home to a dinosaur graveyard!
 
2     This country is called Mongolia. It lies in central Asia. To Mongolia's north is Russia and to its south is China. Mongolia is a huge country. And it is one of the oldest countries in the world. This is why Mongolia is such a special place.
 
3     The capital of Mongolia is a city with a funny name. It is called Ulaanbaatar. Most Mongolians live in Ulaanbaatar. It is the largest city in the country. Some parts of Ulaanbaatar are very modern and some are not. In fact, some people say that parts of the city look exactly as they did hundreds of years ago. That is exciting, because Ulaanbaatar is almost 3,000 years old. Ulaanbaatar is between two of Mongolia's big rivers--the Tuul and Selbe. Big mountains also surround the city.
