Prosperous thanks to its successful cotton growing and processing industry, Mary retains much of the Soviet-era sensibility once prevalent in this part of the world.
Visit Gyaur Kala and Pokrovskaya Church for their historical value. Discover out-of-the-way places like Gonur Depe and Gurbanguly Hajji Mosque. There's more to do: shop like a local with Zelyony (Green) Bazaar and get engrossed in the history at National History and Ethnology Museum.

A Soviet-like grid of opulent marble edifices in the center of the desert, Ashgabat paints an unusual picture.
Parthian Settlement of Nisa and Geokdepe are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Visit Hezreti Osman Mosque and Ertugrul Gazi Mosque for their historical value. And it doesn't end there: look for all kinds of wild species at Kow Ata Underground Lake, examine the collection at Turkmen Museum of Fine Arts, appreciate the history behind Independence Monument, and take in panoramic vistas at Monument Arch of Neutrality.
