A Soviet-like grid of opulent marble edifices in the center of the desert, Ashgabat paints an unusual picture. Flattened in the 1940s by a violent earthquake, the capital of Turkmenistan has been redeveloped as a exercise in visionary architecture and display of wealth for this recently independent republic. Visit its gleaming white palace, Vegas-style fountains, and lavish museums celebrating the country's heritage, while reeling at the ambition and extraordinary nature of this ever-growing renovation project. Uncover the city by foot, or ride between its many marble bus stops--a cheap option for those wanting to see as much as possible in this city. Plan your trip to Ashgabat and other Turkmenistan destinations using our handy Turkmenistan trip maker app.
