Sights of Tajikistan

Sights of Tajikistan

Tajikistan is a unique and marvelous country. Its territory being almost entirely occupied by mountains, the country’s attractions consist mainly of high peaks and summits, mountain rivers and lakes, hot springs, villages and auls hidden in deep valleys and an alpine desert in Gorno-Badakhshan Autonomous Region.

Tajikistan is a country of ancient culture and traditions. Ruins of buildings constructed 4-4.5 thousand years ago indicate that the first urban settlements sprang up in the region in about that period. Some of the remaining historical monuments, such as Penjikent, Sarazm and Ajipa-Tepa, are of global significance. Among other prominent historical sites are Istaravshan (ancient Cyropolis) and Khojent (antique Alexandria Eschate).
