November 20, 2015 Greenbelt, Maryland - Kazakhstan is the ninth largest country in the world, larger than Western Europe, and extends from the Caspian Sea on the west to Mongolia on the east; from Russia in the north to Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan and China in the south. Kazakhstan was the second largest republic in Russia until the 1991 collapse of the U.S.S.R.
Kazakhstan has been inhabited for a long time and it is thought those people were the first humans to domesticate and ride horses. In fact, the name, Kazakhstan, is from an old Turkic word that meant “independent, a free spirit.”
