  • If you compare two Museum of carpets-in Baku and Ashgabat, Ashkhabad loses. And not beautiful carpets and seamstresses. On attendance. In Baku, the Museum had visitors, I had one in Ashgabat in the entire Museum. In Baku you can buy souvenirs, and in Ashkhabad,-no, and the saddest thing-in Ashgabat at the Museum cannot be photographed, or rather, you can, but for a totally wild price-something around 5 euros per photo. In General, I take pictures. A magnificent Museum, in memory only a little remains, because my offer habit-buying books about the Museum, I too could not be realized. Said-no books. And recommend the show.
