Information about Kyrgyzstan

Kyrgyzstan is a mountainous and not big country situated among mountains and valleys of the North Tien Shan. Reliable sources have permitted local and foreign historians to establish the fact that the state organization of Kyrgyz people counts twenty two centuries. The documents of Sym Tsjan, the well-known Chinese historian and chronicler, are the most ancient historical documents about Kyrgyz state organization. In 2003 Kyrgyzstan marked the 2200 anniversary of its state system and the long history of country is evident to visitors of Kyrgyzstan on the rock paintings near the Issyk-kul Lake and Burana tower.
Contemporary Kyrgyzstan is a tolerant country. More than 80 ethnic groups live in it, creating the variety of cultures and traditions. Russian and European impact can be seen at large streets and the impressive architecture of the capital, developing significantly during last years and capturing progressive tendencies of contemporary architecture and design.
The most illustrative examples of the Great Silk Way’s heritage can be found at the south of Fergana valley where the ancient Osh city used to be a fortress of Alexander Macedonian. Kyrgyzstan is a trade crossroad and a trans-shipment point between the Europe and Asia as before when it used to be a connecting-link between north and south directions of Silk Way.
Kyrgyzstan maintains friendly relations with many countries. These relations, based on durable cultural interaction, will develop and strengthen in future. Many welfare states are ready to share with Kyrgyzstan their experiences in developing the democracy and realizing reforms needful for the creation of prosperous market state.
