Prosperous thanks to its successful cotton growing and processing industry, Mary retains much of the Soviet-era sensibility once prevalent in this part of the world.
Visit Gyaur Kala and Pokrovskaya Church for their historical value. Discover out-of-the-way places like Gonur Depe and Gurbanguly Hajji Mosque. There's more to do: shop like a local with Zelyony (Green) Bazaar and get engrossed in the history at National History and Ethnology Museum.
