The Urals (from Bashk. Үр – hill, Bashk. Үral – belt) is a geographical region in Russia, stretching between the East European and West Siberian plains. The main part of this region is the Ural mountain system.
The Urals is at the junction of Europe and Asia and is the border between these regions. The stone belt of the Urals and the adjacent elevated plains of the Urals extend from the shores of the Arctic Ocean in the north to semi-desert regions of Kazakhstan in the south in the form of 100-400 km strip: for more than 2500 km they divide the East European and West Siberian plains.
