  • The National Library is the biggest library in the region having a repository of more than 3 mln books and hundred thousands of e-books and periodicals as well as rare ancient manuscripts.  more »
  • When visiting the national library you can see all the other attractions such as a monument, Flagstaff, tsum, area. Generally speaking, all situated nearby. Immediately evident that the post-Soviet State, larger scale is different from the other, but it's worth a visit! Incidentally in Dushanbe have zest let this country of the former Soviet Union but still its traditions and its culture

  • You must see this library once in life! She is gorgeous, huge and very clean. The people look forward to every visitor and are happy to answer questions about the books and the activities inside. You should only good can Russian or Tajik and one is then satisfied. All areas are recommended! Each floor is different from the others. The art that hangs there is beautiful! Recommended! < 3

  • A hge building dedicated for library. Havent been inside, dont think its full of books.
  • A rather nice library (by central Asian standards). It was built to impress which it kind of does not as it is architecturally strange. But the people really try to make it work. There is even a child daycare and a reading room for the blind in the building. You can book a guided tour taking you thru the whole affair.
  • Huge library. It was built to look like an open book. It should be viewed from above so the resemblance can be seen. Checkpoint and individual cards are available. Books are sorted by departments. I am not sure about the variety of reading materials though.
  • Design like a giant soviet period building, but flat, no nice details. Who the architect???
  • Great view
