6 Sogdiana Breathing With the Past

Sogdiana Breathing With the Past

Posted on May 16, 2012 by team

North of Tajikistan is occupied by the Sogdian region named after the ancient capital Sogdiana. Nowadays its territory is shared between Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. The population is also combined, people can speak at least 3 languages: Tajik, Uzbek and Russian. However young people are worse at Russian than the “Soviet generation”.

Near Khudjand there is a so-called “Tajik Sea” – Kairakkum reservoir. For the locals it really substitutes a sea. People from all over Tajikistan come here to rest.

Each foreigner coming to Tajikistan has to register in the police within 3 days.

From Khudjand you may have a trip to Istaravshan, the city is very ancient.

    Tajikistan is really nice.
    too bad there is no photo of chinese workers camp, thats quite harsh. not much people would accept such working conditions.
    There is also a lot of chinese trucks supplying the country with all sort of goods.
    no photo of dushambe, it is not a big village, it is a rather large city but with lots of trees that make it nicer.
