Must-visit places in Bishkek

The most famous sights of the Kyrgyzstan capital:

  • City center. Most of the museums, theaters, squares, and restaurants are concentrated in the historical district of the city. Interesting fact: Bishkek is the only city in Central Asia where you can still find a monument to Vladimir Lenin. It is located behind the main square.
  • Ala-Too Square. The main square of the country, where the marble Government House, large fountains, and parks are located. On holidays there are various mass events.
  • Eastern bazaar. A bright attraction, where ripe fruits and vegetables are represented at any time of the year. Not far from the bazaar, you can admire the beauty of mosques and Orthodox cathedrals.
  • Gallery Erkindik. The Country Art Gallery is located near Oak Park. Here guests of the city can get acquainted with the works of Bishkek artists.
  • Natural sights of Kyrgyzstan. Due to the small area, it is easy to get to the most beautiful places in the country. These include the Tien Shan Mountains, Issyk-Kul, Altyn Arashan Gorge, Arslanbob, Jety Oguz Gorge.

Climate: what is the best time to visit Bishkek?

Bishkek summers are hot and dry. Temperatures can reach as high as 31°C.

Winter is moderately cold. Temperatures can reach -8°C.

Since Kyrgyzstan is in a mountainous area and has no access to the sea, that's why it's good to travel here year-round. In the cold season, head to ski resorts and enjoy the high mountain scenery, and in the warm season, swim in Issyk Kul, spend the night in a yurt in the mountains, and walk around town.

How to get from the airport to the city center?

From Manas airport to the center of the city you can take a minibus № 380 for 40 KGS or a cab from 400 KGS. The travel time to the central districts is 25-30 minutes.
