The most interesting and beautiful tourist sites in Turkmenistan
Photos, reviews, descriptions, and links to maps
Turkmenistan is a country with great tourism potential. The former USSR republic has followed a completely authentic path, unlike its less fortunate neighbours. In Turkmenistan, ancient traditions are revered, cheerful national holidays in honour of the birth of a child or harvest, and at the same time, modern cities are being built and industry is being developed.
For a tourist who decided to visit Turkmenistan, the country will play with bright colours, show its natural beauties and tell many fascinating stories. Guests will be interested to relax in the tourist zone “”Avaza”” on the shore of the Caspian Sea, look at the vast desert of the Karakum desert, walk at the spring festivals of snowdrops (Chuchmoma Sayili) and tulips (Lola Sayili) or stroll through the city of flowering gardens Ashgabat.
On the territory of modern Turkmenistan ancient civilisations rose to power and collapsed. There you can see the residence of the Parthian kings of Nisa and the ruins of ancient Merv, follow the footsteps of the mighty Achaemenid dynasty and the armies of Alexander the Great. There are many tourist routes along the famous historical sites.
