Dushanbe

3.8
Little more than a small town at the turn of the 20th century, Dushanbe grew rapidly during the Soviet era and now serves as the national capital and home to nearly 800,000 people. Wide, tree-lined boulevards, grandiose government buildings, and gaudy monuments remind visitors on a Dushanbe vacation of the old Soviet days. While the city itself lacks much in the way of historical interest or attractive architecture, the jaw-dropping mountain scenery in the background offers a tantalizing glimpse of what's on offer for adventurous travelers beginning their trip in Dushanbe. Dushanbe is in Tajikistan. Use our Tajikistan road trip app to arrange the details of your trip to Dushanbe and other destinations.

Where to stay in Dushanbe

By national capital standards, Dushanbe offers slim pickings in terms of accommodations. A small cluster around Khusravi Dekhlavi Street in the heart of the city includes a handful of Western chain hotels, while a smattering of smaller, more budget-friendly options can be found in the streets surrounding Rudaki Park. The youth hostel culture has yet to take off in Dushanbe, with only limited options catering to the backpacker crowd.
