What does Siberia mean

It comes from the old Turkic language and means "sleeping land". Siberia was the ancient homeland of Turks. Even today, Turkic language is one of the official languages in the region due to thousands of Turkic people residing there.
Siberia is a large geographic region in the Asian part of Russia of about 13,490,000 sq km. It is situated between the Ural Mountains in the west and the rivers which flow into the Pacific Ocean in the east, and between the Arctic Ocean in the north and the southern borders of Russia. The word Siberia comes from the Tartar word "Sibir" meaning "Sleeping Land". Siberia covers a large number of Russian administrative districts (Oblasts, Okrugs, Krays and Autonomous Republics) like states, counties, municipalities and ethnic homelands and does not have a capital, although Irkutsk, the pearl of Siberia, is often referred to as the capital of Siberia possibly due to its relatively central location.
