Bishkek Travel Guide
The Kyrgyz capital is a Soviet-built city characterized by tree-lined streets, imposing architecture, and large boulevards. You’ll find that Bishkek is an approachable city that invites you to explore unhurriedly. The city is also extremely walkable, clean and green and offers many delightful spaces to relax.
Bishkek surprised us in several ways. Though predominately Muslim, Kyrgyz drink alcohol and intermingle between the sexes more freely than you might expect. As we walked around this Central Asian city, we saw many couples affectionately holding each other on park benches, walking hand in hand, and going out. After traveling months in South and South East Asia, it was extremely refreshing. We had a marvelous time exploring Bishkek and we hope you do too.
