  • Were in June on a public beach. Clean, there are changing rooms and covered gazebos for rest on the shore. Of the entertainment was only a water scooter. The approach is smooth, first pebbles, then sand. The water is warm, there are few people. It's a nice place.

  • We drove down to this large reservoir. It was too late in the season for swimming or water sports so everything was rather quiet. It is now called the Tajik Sea.  more »
