  • The Turkmen nation and is a museum you can learn about carpet, has so far traditional and important. Staff for me to explain in English, so many new discoveries. On the patterned carpets, which look the same in every there deeper meaning and interesting, get your carpet making demonstration, so is the best scenic spots. Exhibited is the world's largest carpet.

  • Turkmenistan
  • There are many thing to see in Ashgabat, everything looks a little fake, perhaps because of the enormous speed of growth of the city itself. One of the things not to be missed is a visit to the Museum of the carpet. The carpets are a national pride, and this is definitely the right place to understand the reasons why. Be careful not to take pictures, I got myself a drink giant!!!
