  • Went on a tour thanks to reviews about this place of other travelers. My request to conduct a tour library staff was not at all surprised. Farzon accompanied me. She correctly told about the activities of the library, conducted on all departments. However, the department of ancient manuscripts could not get because of the special regime there. It is necessary to be with the group and inform about the time of the visit in advance. The scale of the library and the attitude to reading and books of the citizens impressed. Despite the summer month readers had quite a lot, including many teenagers.

  • Good place for conferences and forums. Located in an administrative center of Dushanbe, easy accesseble by city transport and also by walking. Beautiful park and boulevard are just next to it.  more »

  • A rather nice library (by central Asian standards). It was built to impress which it kind of does not as it is architecturally strange. But the people really try to make it work. There is even a child daycare and a reading room for the blind in the building. You can book a guided tour taking you thru the whole affair.
