Highlights from your plan
Little more than a small town at the turn of the 20th century, Dushanbe grew rapidly during the Soviet era and now serves as the national capital and home to nearly 800,000 people.Take a break from Dushanbe with a short trip to Hisor Fortress in Hisor, about 42 minutes away.
