Mary

3.2
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. The city dates back to the 1820s, when Tekke Turkmen erected a fortification here. Russians took over in the 1880s, seizing control of the cotton production and eventually the immense natural gas reserves just to the west of Mary. The city offers few tourist attractions, serving instead as a good base for day trips to nearby points of interest, which include the ancient cities of Merv and Gonur. Popular things to do in Mary itself include visiting the outstanding regional museum of history, known equally for its architecture and informative exhibits. Mary is in Mary Province.

Where to stay in Mary

Arguably the best accommodations in Mary sit on or near the banks of the Murgab River. Hotels in this area offer comfortable rooms with modern furniture, plus access to additional facilities like fitness centers and pools. Less expensive and less comfortable, hotels in Soviet-era buildings feature basic rooms and very few--if any--amenities. Unimproved and relatively neglected, these establishments generally only offer hot water early in the morning and late in the evening.
