Sporting events

The national sport of Tajikistan is wrestling (Gushtin Giri).

Buzkaschi is a team game in which two teams on horseback try to pull a goat carcass slaughtered according to Islamic laws over the finish line of the opposing team.

As a mountainous country, Tajikistan is ideal for mountaineering, trekking and hiking.


The best time to travel to Tajikistan

The ideas of what is meant by a particularly favorable travel climate depend on a number of factors. For example, cultural travelers see the climate very differently than people who want to spend a pure beach holiday, for example. The state of health or age can also play an important role. Therefore, our travel time recommendations are divided into the following two categories:


people who are more sun-hungry For people who like to enjoy a lot of sun and for whom higher temperatures do not cause problems, the following seasons are particularly suitable for a stay in the country: Summer.

For people who prefer a temperate climate

People who prefer a temperate climate and lower temperatures should better use the following seasons to stay in Tajikistan: spring and autumn.

UNESCO World Heritage Sites

Silk Road in the Tian Shan Mountains

The Silk Road crosses borders and includes the following core areas.

- the province of Xinjiang in China

- Afghanistan

- Kashmir

- the north of India

- the northern parts of Pakistan

- Tajikistan

- Kyrgyzstan

- Uzbekistan

- Turkmenistan

- Iran's Khorasan province in the northeast of the country

The Silk Road is an old caravan route. According to our era, it has been known since the year zero.

The Silk Road led from China to West Asia and India, bypassing the Gobi Desert. For example, the cities of Antioch and Damascus became rich through constant trade with other countries - and also gained political importance.

City-states such as Turfan and Chotan emerged along the Silk Road.

A trip from China to the Mediterranean took about three to four years. In this way, China supplied silk, glass and precious metals, among other things. In return, cultivated plants were brought to China from the west.

The tracks of the later railways were largely laid along the old Silk Road. It is hoped that by preserving and renewing the Silk Road, Afghanistan will become a hub between Central and South Asia and the Middle East. The Silk Road was added to the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites in 2014.

Tajik National Park

The Tajik National Park is partly located in the Pamir Mountains in the eastern part of Tajikistan and covers an area of 2.6 million ha = 26,000 km². The region became a national park in 1992.

The national park is geographically very different and consists of over 7,000 m high mountain regions, grasslands, steppe and desert. Worth mentioning is the Fedtchenko Glacier, which is the longest glacier outside the polar region with a length of a little less than 80 km, as well as the 3,260 m high and around 80 km² large Sarez Lake, which was created around 100 years ago as a result of an earthquake is as well as the 4,020 m high and around 380 km² large Karakul Lake, which was probably formed about 5 million years ago as a result of a meteorite impact.

The area is extremely sparsely populated, not least because of the strong tectonic activity.

The region has long, cold winters and cool summers. Brown bears, snow leopards, Siberian ibex and wolves, among others, have their habitat in the park.

The national park was added to the list of UNESCO World Natural Heritage Sites in 2013.

Sarazm Archaeological Site Sarazm

- also Sarasm - is a pre-urban settlement in what is now Sughd Province. The settlement is one of the oldest in Central Asia and was built around 3,500 BC. And was until about 2000 BC. One of the most important metalworking sites in Central Asia, this historical site was only discovered in 1976 and excavated from 1977 with the help of French archaeologists.

The "Sarazm Archaeological Site" was added to the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites in 2010, making it the country's first UNESCO World Heritage Site
