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.
Get out of town with these interesting Dushanbe side-trips: Hisor Fortress (in Hisor), Ski Tourism Complex Safed Dara (in Tagob) and Nurek Dam (in Nurek). There's much more to do: walk around Rudaki Park, explore the activities along Iskanderkul Lake, get engrossed in the history at National Museum of Antiquities, and view the masterpieces at NOOR ART GALLERY.

For more things to do, traveler tips, maps, and more tourist information, go to the Dushanbe trip itinerary site .
