Kyrgyzstan is a small mountainous country with freedom-loving people, tasty and clean waters, snow-caped peaks and vast soviet heritage. The country is rich in stunning nature, and although very few architectural sights of the past have been preserved, it is the nature and the people themselves who embody the uniqueness of the country. Here you can feel like a pioneer, being in the places untouched by man. It lies right in the heart of the Eurasian continent, without access to the sea. 94% of the territory is located at an altitude of 1,500 meters above sea level. Two mountain systems Pamir-Alai and Tien Shan run through Kyrgyzstan (most of the ridges of the Tien Shan mountain system are located in Kyrgyzstan).
The land of Kyrgyzstan with its picturesque mountains and lakes has a long and conflicting history, and the Kyrgyz themselves claim to be one of the most ancient nations. The Kyrgyz were mainly nomads, lived in yurts and were engaged in cattle breeding. Even today, livestock is one of the leading sectors of agriculture.
Kyrgyz people cannot imagine their life without two things: meat and tea. Any meal begins and ends with tea. Be prepared for an abundance of meat dishes and food, in general, because for a real Kyrgyz, it is one of the main criteria for hospitality. If you are a guest, they will offer you all the best that the hosts have: the best places at the table, the best food, the best gifts, and the best accommodation.
