Bishkek is the capital of Kyrgyzstan with a population of about 1 million people, located in the Chui Valley at an altitude of 700-900 meters above sea level.

Many places are reminiscent of the Soviet period in the history of the city. The influence of the Soviet era is especially felt in the centre, where you can see several vivid examples of Soviet architecture: the Philharmonic Hall, the Government building, the Historical Museum, and the Victory Monument.

Along with them, you will see modern examples of Kyrgyz architecture in the city: Monument to Manas, Monument of Courage, monuments to akyns, manaschi (storytellers) and local rulers of different eras.

From here you can reach Ala-Archa National Park, Belogorka waterfall, Kol Tor lake, Burana tower and many other natural sights famous for their wildlife.
