Historic Bishkek

Burana Tower

Burana Tower is the main architectural monument of Chui Valley and the famous Great Silk Road. The cultural significance of the tower is truly great, as it is the only monument of ancient architecture preserved in the region. The complex is located in a very picturesque place, near the Shamsi and Kegety gorges, to the south of the town of Tokmok.

Al-Too Square

Ala-Too Square is the main square in the city and it is also worth a visit. It is the place where most of the festivals are held in the city, as well as the occasional demonstration. You can wander around and purchase goods from local vendors or admire the impressive fountains.

Osh Bazaar

Walk around this huge, bustling market and soak up the atmosphere. You can buy a wide range of local foods here from the numerous stalls, making it an excellent place to try some of the local cuisine. It's also a great place to pick up some cheap souvenirs like a felt hat.

Museum of Fine Arts

The Museum of Fine Arts is one of the first museums in Kyrgyzstan, and was founded in 1935. Originally it was called the National Art Gallery, and was held in St. Nicholas Church in Oak Park. More and more pieces were purchased, too, and now the collection numbers over 17,500 items. There is also a collection of linocuts by Theodore Hertzen, depicting the Epic of Manas, and a number of replicas of famous Egyptian, Greek, and Roman statues.

Horseback riding has been proven to have a positive effect on the spine, keeping your posture in good shape, and spending time with horses is said to take away the negative energy, replacing it with a sought-after positive mood. Experience Kyrgyzstan the Kyrgyz way!
