Welcome to Bishkek
Green and bustling but short on sights, the location of the country's capital is more of an attraction than its forgettable architecture. Just occasionally, when the air is exceptionally clear, the Kyrgyz Ala-Too materialises as if by magic to create a grand mountain backdrop. For travellers, Bishkek is most useful as a comfortable place to pick up a visa or two while planning their Central Asian adventure.
