Dushanbe



One other sight in the northern part of the capital is the S. Aini Park. The writer's mausoleum is in the centre of the park. There is a sycamore path in the park called the "Friendship of People Avenue". All the trees were planted by participants of the First Conference of the Peoples of Asia and Africa, held in Dushanbe.
The Botanical Gardens of the Academy of Sciences of Tajikistan are located on one of the backstreets crossing Rudaki Avenue near the Agrarian University. It was founded in 1933. More than 2,000 species of plants from all over the world grow here. Collections of more than 600 species of roses and more than 30 species of juniper are of great interest.

Dushanbe is a member of the World Federation of Sister Cities and maintains friendly ties with 13 sister cities, including Lusaka (Zambia), Sana (Yemen), Klagen-furt (Austria), Boulder (USA), Monastir (Tunisia), Lahore (Pakistan), Reutlingen (Germany), Tehran and Mashhad (Iran), Urumchi (China), Mazari Sharif (Afghanistan), Minsk (Belarus) and Saint Petersburg (Russia).
The capital's public transportation system includes buses, trolleybuses and marshrutkas (minibuses). There is no metro in the city. Dushanbe International Airport (international airport code - DYU) is within the city limits and it only takes 10-20 minutes to get to by public transportation from the city centre. It hosts a cloak-room, first-aid room, restaurants, cafes, snack bars, and a post office.
The State Unitary Aviation Enterprise "Tojikis-ton" (Tajik Air) has regular and charter flights between Dushanbe and Moscow (Domodyedovo airport, Russia), Novosibirsk (Russia), Yekaterinburg (Russia), Almaty (Kazakhstan), Bishkek (Kyrgyzstan), Urumchi (China), Sharjah (United Arab Emirates), Istanbul (Turkey), and Delhi (India).

It is possible to get from the capital by air to various destinations in the country such as Kulob, Panjak-ent, Khujand, Khorugh (which is one of the most interesting and technically complicated regular air routes in the world), Aini, Vanj, Jirgatol, Gharm, Farhor, Rushon, and Khovaling.
The train is a popular mode of transportation which can be used for travel to and from Dushanbe. Currently the direct route to Astrakhan (on the Caspian Sea in Russia) goes through Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan by the Trans-Caspian railway. From Astrakhan you can get to Moscow and other Russian Federation cities. The whole trip from Moscow to Dushanbe with a transfer in Astrakhan will take 4-6 days.
The regular local train Dushanbe-Konibodom-Dushanbe (via Samarqand in Uzbekistan) connects the capital with Sughd region in the north. Dushanbe grows prettier every year and always greets guests with a warm and open heart.
