Flights from Dubai to Dushanbe, Tajikistan

Learn about Tajikistan’s rich culture in its thriving capital, Dushanbe


Get to know Dushanbe

Until the early 1900s, Dushanbe was a small village in the west of Tajikistan, near the Hisor mountains.

Today it’s the seat of Tajiki government and a leafy university town. Filled with classical Russian-influenced architecture, museums and parks, the city also lays claim to the biggest library in Asia, and the tallest flagpole in the world. 

Top things to see and do

  • Hike up to the top of Victory Park – there are 360° views of Dushanbe and surrounding snow-capped mountains.
  • Dive into Tajiki history at Fort Hissar, a 13th-century fort and madrassa 25 minutes’ drive from Dushanbe. It costs around 1-3 somoni to explore the rebuilt fort and small museum.       
  • Barter over spices, meats and dried fruits at Shahmansur Bazaar on Lohuti Street, the biggest market in town.
  • Hear Tajiki music at the Gurminj Museum, with over 100 traditional Pamiri instruments on display.
  • Visit the Somoni Monument – depicting the 10th-century Samanid ruler, Ismoil Somoni, Tajikistan’s national hero. 

Tips for travellers

Leading out of Dushanbe, the Pamir Highway is a spectacular mountain road that covers much of the western Himalayas. The scenery undulates from craggy mountains – many over 7,000 metres above sea level – to lush, green valleys and lakes.
