Bishkek is the largest city and the capital city of Kyrgyzstan . It is located in the northern part of the country. The city is elevated 800 m above sea. To the north of the city, there is a magnificent mountain range named Tian Shan, which creates the distinctive character of the view of the city.

Glances into History

Bishkek was founded in 1878 as a Russian fortress Pipek. From 1926 to 1991, the city was called Frunze in the honor of General of the Red Army, Machal Frunze.

Bishkek Today

Bishkek is a cultural, economic and business center of the country. There are wide boulevards, lined with trees and houses built in typical local styles. Unfortunately, a lot of them got lost among newly developed buildings, built in the Soviet style. The most significant monuments include the National History Museum, and the National Art Museum which includes expositions with local traditional craft. Visitors usually want to see the main government building and the Ala Too Square, where you can find the Independence Monument or you can also watch the regular changing of the guard. West from the city center you will come across the Bishkek largest market.

How to Get There

The Manas International Airport is located approximately 25 km north-west of the city center.
