Amur is one of the great rivers on the Far East of Russia, and is among the ten biggest rivers of the world. Part of the frontier between Russia and China lies along Amur.

The history of the peoples of the Amur region counts many millennia long. Thus on the rocky banks of the river there were found drawings (The Pisanitsa of Amur), which are more ancient than the Egyptian Hieroglyphes.
