Rising out of the Karakum Desert, Ashgabat is one of the world’s most unusual cities. Hewn almost entirely out of white marble, this modern metropolis boasts wide, Soviet-style avenues, manicured parks and a myriad of gilded domes and statues – the brainchild of the late ‘president for life’, Saparmurat Niyazov. This intriguing city is the gateway to discovering the many secrets of Turkmenistan.


Ashgabat’s futuristic marble façade was created by the eccentric dictator Niyazov as part of his urban renewal project, turning this remote outpost into one of the world’s most bizarre cities. The boulevards of white marble are built in the Soviet style, with vast parks and tree-lined streets bisecting the capital city. Visit the Arch of Neutrality with its 12 meter high gold statue of the former president and discover more about his fascinating and eccentric reign at the Presidential Museum. Learn more about ancient Turkmenistan inside the National Museum, home to Bronze-age relics and a collection of Neolithic tools from the barren western reaches of Turkmenistan.
