Turkmenistan: Ashgabat

Ashgabat is the name of the capital of Turkmenistan. Ashgabat is written in Turkmen. The city is located in the south of the country in an oasis of the Karakum desert. It is also located on the Karakum Canal. 860,000 people live in Ashgabat. It is also the largest city in the country.

The city was and is being redesigned on a large scale because Turkmenistan wants to show the country’s prosperity to the outside world. This resulted in huge triumphal arches, huge squares, multi-lane parade streets and buildings clad in white marble.
