Dushanbe

Formerly known as Stalinabad.

Maybe because they didn’t like the original name which means Monday in Tajik.

My days in the capital were pleasant because Dushanbe has a nice climate. In winter the surrounding mountains shield the city against the cold winds from Siberia.

Except for walking around, I didn’t do anything in Dushanbe.
