About Mongolia

Mongolia, situated in Central Asia to the east of the continent, shares borders with Siberia (Russia) to the north, East Turkestan (China) to the west, and Manchuria (China) to the east. The country is politically influenced by Russia and the People's Republic of China, with Outer Mongolia affiliated with Russia and Inner Mongolia under Chinese sovereignty. In ancient times, present-day Mongolia was ruled by Proto-Mongols and Tungus, with the establishment of the great Hun Empire.
With a population of nearly 3,3 million, about 76% of the Mongolian population consists of Khalkha Mongols, 8% are other Mongols, 5% are Kazakh Turks, and the remaining portion includes other Turks, Russians, and Chinese.
The official language spoken in the country is Mongolian, which has different dialects. Additionally, Turkish, Russian, and Chinese are popular languages spoken in the country. The capital of the country, Ulaanbaatar, with a population of over 1 million, is the largest city, and another important city is Erdenet. Erdenet, the country's second-largest city, boasts a highly modern architecture. Other cities like Choibalsan, Darkhan, Ölgii, and Sainshand also attract significant tourist attention. The official currency used in Mongolia is the Tugrik.
The country, which previously had close ties to the Soviet Union, transitioned to a market economy after 1990. Primarily relying on animal husbandry, Mongolia generates a significant portion of its income from large and small livestock farming. Although tourism contributes relatively little income to the economy of this landlocked country, it engages in food, textile, chemical, and cement production, providing essential revenue. Calcium fluoride, meat, wool, and cotton are some of the most important export products.
Mongolia experiences a severe continental climate with low rainfall and notable temperature fluctuations across much of the country. Northern regions often experience intense cold accompanied by snowfall. Mongolia is susceptible to powerful dust and sandstorms, leading to significant temperature variations between seasons. The winter months (November-February) are harsh with frequent frost, while spring and summer are milder, averaging around 20 degrees Celsius from mid-May to September.
Mongolia, home to diverse ethnic groups, hosts many festivals and cultural events, including the Ice Festival, Naadam Festival, International Ulaanbaatar Marathon, Tsaatan Festival, and various religious festivals.
The traditional Mongolian cuisine offers a variety of options, with a focus on meat and dairy products. Notable features include delicious barbecues with unique sauces, making meat dishes a key element. Airag, made from mare's milk, is a famous beverage in Mongolian cuisine.
