Bishkek

Bishkek is a classic modern Soviet-style city with marble buildings and boulevards that seem too large. Among the high rise apartment blocks typical of Soviet times, you’ll find Central Asia creeping in again. Farmer markets (bazaars) are springing up everywhere and money changing seems to be one of the main industry.

Apart from the distinctly communist-style museums and the general open atmosphere, there is not much to keep you in Bishkek, but you will spend quite a bit of time there anyway in all probability, as it is the main travel hub for Kyrgyzstan and the best place to get information or make bookings.
