An extensive geographical region, and by the broadest definition is also known as North Asia. Historically, Siberia has been a part of Russia since the 16th century.

Temperatures in Siberia can go as low as minus 67 degrees Celsius, prompting even eyelashes to freeze. But residents of the remote region are accustomed to the record-cold weather.
