Ossetia is a region in the northern Caucasus Mountains, inhabited by the Ossetians. It is currently politically divided between Alania in Russia (formerly North Ossetia), and South Ossetia in Georgia.
Today native Ossetians live in the small regions along the central part of Greater Caucasus Range. A large Ossetian diaspora lives in Turkey, and Ossetians can be found in Russia, France, Sweden, Syria, USA, Canada and other countries all around the world.
