Introducing Dushanbe


The culture and architecture in Dushanbe bear traces of the Soviet period. The presence of Russian soldiers in the city and hearing Russian spoken as the second official language gives visitors a sense of being in Russia. Dushanbe is a modern city with wide streets, and some time should be devoted to the city’s cultural tours. Here’s a fact: Dushanbe means “Monday” in Tajik.
