Landlocked between the Chinese and Russian giants, Mongolia is a special country. It recalls the times when the Mongolians were feared because of their extraordinary skill at fight (let’s remember that they created the largest empire the humanity has known). But these times are in the past. Today Genghis Khan’s vast empire doesn’t exist anymore, but the country remains large: about twelve times the size of England or two times and a half the size of Texas. Excluding Ulan Bator, Mongolia has a density of population surprisingly low: less than 0,5 inhabitants per square kilometre.
This is a little introduction to Mongolia.
