I was in the Kyrgyz capital for only less than 3 days on a business trip. The most impressive in Bishkek is the great scenic view when looking South. Only a few kilometers from the city are mountains up to more than 4800 m high (which is about the same as the Mont Blanc, the highest top in the Alps). Bishkek and the immediate surroundings north of it seem to be the only flat places in this scenic country. In Bishkek itself I missed a sorts "urban density", all streets are extremely wide with at least double alleys in most of them, so the whole city looks completely green.

- Pros:Very green city with a relaxed atmosphere
