Facts about Kyrgyzstan

When you live in another culture for a sufficiently long time, you begin to acknowledge inconspicuous social standards that you would not have learned by going through a book about the nation. If you get an opportunity to tour Kyrgyzstan for several months, you will get to notice some fascinating facts about Kyrgyzstan and its way of life. Here are some of the facts about Kyrgyzstan that you notice as soon as you set foot in the nation.

  • Manas: – Manas, a warrior who brought together Kyrgyzstan, is without a doubt the most prominent society legend in the nation. You see this name all over. There are roads, statues, colleges, radio stations, national parks, and numerous different things that are named after Manas. Not forgetting that Kyrgyzstan’s main airport is named after Manas.
  • Influence of Islamic religion: most of the individuals in Kyrgyzstan are Sunni Muslims. Nonetheless, you will not see clear indications of Islam while strolling down the Bishkek streets, somehow because of its Soviet history. After the fall of communism, the influence of Islam has gradually been returning to Kyrgyz society. A considerable number of Kyrgyz do not drink liquor or eat pork, and some even forego lunch on Friday to go to pray in the mosque.
  • Environmentally friendly: It is a fact that Bishkek is one of the greenest towns in the old Soviet republics, possibly on the planet. The greater numbers of streets in Bishkek are wide and lined with bushes and trees, and it looks truly beautiful.
  • Concentrate on Cleanliness: People esteem cleanliness a great deal here. You have to always remove your shoes before going into anybody’s home.
  • Tea: Citizens of Kyrgyzstan adore tea. It takes the place of water here, and you drink tea with practically every meal. The measure of tea that you will drink in this nation each day is likely quadrupled your normal amount. Tea is served in little bowls rather than mugs, and you quite often order customary Kyrgyz bread with tea.
  • Fewer street lights: Kyrgyzstan is by and large a safe nation; however, there are not a lot of lights on the streets. Indeed, even in Bishkek which is the capital city, the streets are scarcely lit around evening

These are just but a few facts about Kyrgyzstan. It is a great nation to visit and spend a good time with your friends or family.
