Dushanbe, Tajikistan

Dushanbe is the capital of Tajikistan. The tidy avenues lined with beautiful pastel frontages belie the violent civil war that ruined the city streets in the 90s. Stroll down the side streets, and you’ll know how Dushanbe is transforming.

If you are in the mood to escape from the buzzing city and for some calmer moments then head over to Hissar Fortress – a palace of the ancient Bukhara Emirate. It is situated on the outskirts of Dushanbe. Enjoy the calm and peaceful atmosphere while exploring the fortress.

A visit to the Memorial to Tajik writers (Wall of Great Tajik Writers) will acquaint you with the history of Tajik literature. It features the statues of famous novelists, poets, playwrights, and other writers of Tajikistan.
