    1. Akhal-Teke horses. Undoubtedly, it is necessary to look at the thoroughbred Akhal-Teke horses at national Turkmenbashi StudFarm, which is 10 km (6 miles) from Ashgabat. Excursions are best organized through a local travel agent.

    2. Anau. See the ruins of the famous mosque, revered by its striking mosaic and the 8-meter dragon, in the modern city of Hanau, which stands on the site of the destroyed 15th century town, 20 km (12 miles) east of Ashgabat.

    3. Ashgabat. Worth a visit to Ashgabat, the capital on the southern edge of the desert of Kara-Kum. Some of the recent additions to the modern city include Arkiysky neutrality, 75-meter high monument with rotating high golden statue of previous President Niyazov. At the base of the monument there is a café and lifts that can be used as lookouts.

    There are a number of museums, including the Art Museum and the National Museum of Turkmenistan. There is a small museum of carpets, attached to a carpet factory in the street Kuragli, which has the largest handmade carpet in the world. Sunday market in Ashkhabad is the best place to buy Turkmen carpets.
