- The Urals — One of the wealthiest regions, known for producing many of the resources Russia needs today.
- Siberia — The largest area in Russia diverse in landscape and yearly temperatures with stunning lakes, world longest rivers, but swampy in most part in the center and north.
- Russian Far East — One of the coldest regions in Russia, home to the coldest city in the world, Yakutsk.
