INTRODUCING KYRGYZSTAN
Local Name: Кыргызстан
Other Name(s): Kyrgyz Republic
Home to stunning mountain scenery including toothy-edged, snow-covered peaks, and lush river valleys, some adventure travelers feel that Kyrgyzstan is one of the most beautiful spots on the planet.

The majority of the modern citizens in Kyrgyzstan are descendants of nomadic Turkic peoples that roamed Central Asia for centuries, and to this day, most prefer to live in the rural areas.

In the late 1800s, this beautiful land was literally absorbed into Russia, and subsequently controlled by the USSR for almost 75 years. When the former Soviet Union finally collapsed in 1991, Kyrgyzstan emerged as an independent state and began to embrace the western world with serious internal reforms and democratic principles.

For many decades the country's economy depended on the Russia's economic influence, and the loss of that assistance required some new thinking. Today the economy of Kyrgyzstan still revolves around agriculture, however, modern manufacturing methods and tourism are slowly on the increase.
