The national capital of Turkmenistan is flanked by the Kopetdag Mountains in the south and the Karakum Desert in the north. Ashgabat is not only a central transportation hub for travel to the various regions in the country as well as an entry point into Iran, but certainly justifies a visit in its own right: the white marble city, also known as “City of Love” hosts a variety of accommodation and dining options, the international and domestic airport and the central train station, but also beautiful museums, numerous parks and fountains, national monuments, the national hippodrome and various private Ahalteke stables and farms, the largest mosque in Central Asia, the largest weekend bazaar of Central Asia and of course the UNESCO World Heritage site of Nissa. Ashgabat is also the starting point for day trips into the surrounding mountain area. A visit of the city center by night gives the modern skylines a spectacular look.
