I visited Kyrgyzstan during September 2003, and what a memorable stay it was. Kyrgyzstan is the land of majesticTien-shien mountains, lovely lakes, clean cities and -above all - friendly people.

In summer, spring and autumn, Kyrgyzstan is one of the greenest countries in the world. It is sometimes said that the capital Bishkek is the greenest capital in Asia.

Bishkek: a buoyant small capital, 800'000 inhabitants, smart street cafes, modern shops with imported Italian and Otto catalogue fashion, a mixed community of Kyrgyz, Russians, Koreans and Ukrainians strolling along the streets, a large community of expatriates, bazaars overflowing with sweet-smelling fruit and vegetables and imported Chinese and Pakistani products. Standing as it does, in front of the snow-capped Tien-Schan mountain range, Bishkek looks appealing to any foreign traveller.

With a land area of 198'000 km2, the second-smallest Central Asian state, most of Kyrgyzstan is mountainous, and 90 percent of the landmass is more than 1000 meters above sea level.

If you come to Kyrgyzstan, you should visit a jailoo (high summer pasture) and other special places, to be alone with nature. You will enjoy the vastness of the mountains, purity of the air and water, meet interesting people and feel the depth and range of Kyrgyz hospitality.

Kyrgyz people love songs. From traditional songs to westeranized discos, one can hear all types of lovely songs in nights.
