About Dushanbe


Surrounded by cotton fields, the capital of Tajikistan is a memorial to a Soviet dream of the ideal big city. Wide prospects are lush with greenery, while the circus resembles a spaceship that has landed in the middle of the park. The communal service buildings look more like palaces, as do some of the traditional tea houses, the ‘chaihanas’. Don't miss the stunning tea-house Rokhat with its carved open gallerias and breezy inner court.

'Dushanbe' means 'Monday'. It was the day for the weekly grand bazaar in the era of the Great Silk Road.

The city is a jewel for a lover of monumental architecture: from columns and mosaics to slick and modernist Le Corbusier-inspired constructions, Dushanbe has it all. Outside the city, the great outdoors of Central Asia awaits! Go hiking to see the cotton in full bloom, camp at Varzob Gorge and don't forget to check Nurek Dam, the second-tallest man-made dam in the world.

Most locals aren’t sure what the city centre statue of Ismail Samadi holds in his hand. Popular guess: a fly swatter.
