About Central Asia and the Caucasus Region
Central Asia, also sometimes known as Middle Asia or Inner Asia, is a region in Asia east of the Caspian Sea, west of China, north of Afghanistan, and south of Russia.
Historically Central Asia has been closely tied to its nomadic peoples and the Silk Road, once important trade routes across the Asian continent. The region was and is again a crossroad for the movement of people, goods, and ideas between Europe, Western Asia, South Asia, and East Asia.
West of the Caspian Sea lies the Caucasus, a mountainous region that comprises of southeastern Russia (Northern Caucasus), Armenia, Azerbaijan (including disputed Nagorno-Karabakh region) and Georgia (South Caucasus).
