Located at the heart of central Asia, Dushanbe is known for its intriguing mixture of Soviet-era architecture and quaint pastel neoclassical shopping arcades and government buildings. Among the Tajikistan capital’s mature tree-lined avenues and ample public parks are national museums, a botanical garden, an opera theater, the scenic Victory Park, and traditional chaikhanas (teahouses). With more than 90% of the country covered by mountains with spectacular scenery, the city is a gateway for mountaineering, cycling, kayaking, and other activities and adventures.
