  • you can pass it again and again during journeys through Ashgabat, but you don't have to go there in a targeted way

  • One of the main memorials of this city that counts so many. Very representative of the cult of personality that prevails in Turkmenistan. Amazing city, marble, but completely empty. Lots of delirious monuments. Atmosphere quite oppressive after a while but experience not to be missed. Beautiful encounters with the Turkmenes, welcoming people.
