  • Welcome to Turkmenistan!

    Turkmenistan - tourism land. Present-day Turkmenistan covers territory that has been at the crossroads of civilizations for centuries. The area was ruled in antiquity by various Persian empires and also by Alexander the Great, Muslim armies, the Mongols, Turkic warriors, and eventually the Russians. In medieval times Merv (located in present-day Mary province) was one of the great cities of the Islamic world and an important stop on the Silk Road. Annexed by Russia in the late 1800s, Turkmenistan later figured prominently in the anti-Bolshevik movement in Central Asia. In 1924, Turkmenistan became a Soviet republic; it achieved independence upon the dissolution of the USSR in 1991. Extensive hydrocarbon/natural gas reserves, which have yet to be fully exploited, have begun to transform the...

  • TURKMENISTAN: ARCHAEOLOGIST EXCAVATE ANCIENT CAPITAL OF MERV

    English/Nat The break up of the Soviet Union has led to the opening up of one of the world's most extraordinary archaeological treasures. Now an international archaeological team is excavating Merv, one of the most significant capitals on the ancient Silk Route. But just as the world wakes up to its existence, Merv is in danger of being lost. Rising damp from the Karakum Canal, created by the Russians in the 1950s, is disintegrating the ancient mud brick buildings. Today there's not much more than a few disintegrating mud brick monuments. But at one time Merv was one of the major capitals on the ancient Silk Route between China and the West. It rivalled Damascus, Baghdad and even Cairo as a trading centre. Nowadays, few people live here... most trade is done outside...

More information about the video content bellow: 1. Turkmenistan is an ancient land, once part of the Persian Empire. The Turkmen people were originally pastoral nomads and some of them continued this way of life up into the 20th century, living in transportable dome-shaped felt tents called yurtas. The country several has ancient ruins that used to part of the Silk Road, such as Saraghs, Annau or Merv. 2. Written Turkmen has gone through a vast number of different alphabets. Prior to 1929, Turkmen was written in the Arabic script. Between 1929 and 1938, a Latin alphabet was used. Then, from 1938 through 1991, the Cyrillic alphabet became the official writing system. In 1991, a new Latinate alphabet was introduced, but it has been slow to catch on. 3. Since 1993, water, electricity and gas have been free to all residents in Turkmenistan, meaning the majority of families never turn their stove off to save on the cost of matches! This was guaranteed to last until 2030. 4. Roughly 80% of Turkmenistan is covered by the Karakum (Black Sands) Desert. Turkmenistan has four distinct seasons & it faces two extremely opposite atmospheric conditions, in summer its temperature might go beyond 50 degree Celsius, while in winter it might get less than zero resulting into snowfall. 5. Turkmenistan is world widely famous for its ethnic style of carpets & there is even a carpet museum with more than 1,000 different carpets from 18th & 19th century & more from 20th century. A group of people made a 313 square meter carpet for the Turkmen carpet museum which is recognized as the largest hand-woven carpet in the world in Guinness book of world records. 6. There is more than 70 feet wide burning natural gas crater in Turkmenistan widely known as Derweze which contains bubbling gas active since more than 40 years. This huge gas crater was accidentally found by the drillers from Soviet Union state government of Turkmenistan who burnt the fire in the crater in hope of clearing the gas out of it however, it didn’t work and the gas is continuously burning since then. 7. Ashgabat, the capital of Turkmenistan, was founded in 1881 as a Russian fortress between the Kara-Kum Desert and the Kopet Dagh Mountains, it was largely rebuilt after a severe earthquake (7.3) in 1948. The earthquake caused extreme damage in Ashgabat and nearby villages, where almost all brick buildings collapsed, concrete structures were heavily damaged. Media sources vary on the number of the casualties, from 10,000 to 110,000, equivalent to almost 10% of the Turkmen SSR's population at the time.

TURKMENISTAN: PRESIDENT NIYAZOV PERSONALITY CULT

videos
Russian/Nat The days of Big Brother are back in the former Soviet republic of Turkmenistan, where the local president is worshipped in a personality cult rivalling that of Stalin in Russia and Mao in China. The face of Saparmurat Niyazov gazes out from huge street posters, vodka bottles, chocolate boxes and even adorns local bank notes. With a grip on power as tight as the autocratic Khans of Central Asia in medieval times, Niyazov is safely esconsed as head of state with 99-point- 5 per cent support at the last 'democratic' elections. He is in poll position to reap the rewards of his republic's oil and gas reserves and, although he has yet to agree, fawning supporters have asked him to become 'president for life'. The figure of Saparmurat Niyazov looms large over Ashgabat, the capital of Turkmenistan. At the top of the rocket-like 'Arch of Neutrality,' looms the golden figure of the man who has renamed himself 'Turkmenbashi' - or leader of the Turkmen. After becoming first secretary of the local communist party in 1985, Niyazov consolidated his grip on power after the collapse of the Soviet Union, getting elected president with a staggering 99 per cent majority. Now huge portraits of the president adorn all the capital's main buildings. For visiting Russian president Vladimir Putin last week, there could have been no question as to who the boss of the gas-rich republic was. His meetings with Niyazov were carried live on Turkemen TV, whose screens are also decorated with the image of the president. And the Turkmen leader still held out on naming his price for gas deliveries to Moscow - despite a publicised deal to increase gas supplies to Russia by 350 billion (b) cubic feet next year. Some commentators compare the regime of Niyazov to that of communist North Korea's, and international human rights groups have criticised the long arm of the Turkmen security services who are quick to stamp out any sign of opposition. But the people of Ashgabat- if only on the surface- assure all foreign visitors they are content. Shops are full in the centre of the city, and shelves are lined with products displaying the image of the beloved leader - from vodka to chocolates and green tea. SOUNDBITE: (Russian) "Our president is with us. When I was younger, we didn't even know who the first secretary of the local communist party was. Now even the smallest little child in kindergarten knows who our Saparmurat Turkmenbashi is." SUPER CAPTION: Dursun Khudaiberiyeva, shop manager Children in Turkmenistan pledge allegiance to the father of the nation every morning. In a handful of years Niyazov has transformed the centre of Ashgabat, with its gold-topped French-designed presidential palace, into a realm that would be the envy of any Middle Eastern sheikh. For the people of Turkmenistan, Niyazov is beyond criticism. Vendors selling trinkets at this market may never see the dollars earned from gas and oil sales that are expected to come pouring in over the next few years. They claim what is more important is the freedom to trade which Niyazov's regime allows, even though 'Turkmenbashi' himself was once the country's top communist. And there is a feeling among many that Niyazov's 'reign' is just the beginning for the desert republic. SOUNDBITE: (Russian) "Now our president behaves really well towards the people of Turkmenistan. And maybe the one who comes after him, of course, we can see already- maybe he'll be really good too." SUPER CAPTION: Isuna Airdirbiyeva, Carpet Seller No visitors believe the loyalty is completely genuine, but it's hard to find anyone willing to criticise the leader in public.

Turkmenistan - tourism land. Present-day Turkmenistan covers territory that has been at the crossroads of civilizations for centuries. The area was ruled in antiquity by various Persian empires and also by Alexander the Great, Muslim armies, the Mongols, Turkic warriors, and eventually the Russians. In medieval times Merv (located in present-day Mary province) was one of the great cities of the Islamic world and an important stop on the Silk Road. Annexed by Russia in the late 1800s, Turkmenistan later figured prominently in the anti-Bolshevik movement in Central Asia. In 1924, Turkmenistan became a Soviet republic; it achieved independence upon the dissolution of the USSR in 1991. Extensive hydrocarbon/natural gas reserves, which have yet to be fully exploited, have begun to transform the country. Today, according to the World Economic Forum, Turkmensitan's economy is the second fastest-growing economy in the world.

TURKMENISTAN: ARCHAEOLOGIST EXCAVATE ANCIENT CAPITAL OF MERV

English/Nat The break up of the Soviet Union has led to the opening up of one of the world's most extraordinary archaeological treasures. Now an international archaeological team is excavating Merv, one of the most significant capitals on the ancient Silk Route. But just as the world wakes up to its existence, Merv is in danger of being lost. Rising damp from the Karakum Canal, created by the Russians in the 1950s, is disintegrating the ancient mud brick buildings. Today there's not much more than a few disintegrating mud brick monuments. But at one time Merv was one of the major capitals on the ancient Silk Route between China and the West. It rivalled Damascus, Baghdad and even Cairo as a trading centre. Nowadays, few people live here... most trade is done outside the city. Perestroika and the break-up of the Soviet Union in 1992 led to the opening up of Merv to archaeologists for the first time in 70 years. Following this period of openness, the International Merv Project was established with a team of archaeologists from around the world. The I-M-P is co-ordinated by the British Museum, University College London and the Academy of Sciences of Turkmenistan. Team members include Georgina Herrmann, from U-C-L, and Kakamurad Kurbansakhatov from the A-S-T. During the Soviet period Herrmann knew about Merv only from occasional publications from her Soviet counterparts. When Herrmann first saw Merv she says she was overwhelmed by its sheer size and the fact that the mud brick buildings had survived for more than a thousand years. SOUNDBITE: (English) "Merv is a very special site, among many things because of the way it developed, there are a whole series of cities not built one on top of each other as lets say Jerusalem, but side by side, so each of them is a sort of time capsule offering you the chance to look at it archaeologically right on the surface. And this of course is very exciting, so we can look at the different periods and create the history of the city through the millennia." SUPERCAPTION: Georgina Herrmann, co-director of International Merv Project During the 11th Century under the Seljuq sultans, Merv was one of the world's largest and most cosmopolitan centres. Merv was the eastern capital of the Seljuqs, a Turkic tribe whose rule ran from Central Asia westward to Anatolia and southward to Arabia. It was also a famous centre of learning, attracting mathematicians and astronomers from all over the world. The 13th Century saw the end of the Seljuks. Mongol hordes attacked Merv three times - resulting in the death of over a (m) million citizens. Merv was later revived in the 15th Century - when Timurid ruler Shah Rukh, a distant relative of Gengis Khan, built a new city a few kilometres from the ruined Seljuk capital. The Timurid city grew and prospered - but never reached the significance of the Seljuq dynasty. For a time Merv was used as a military base for the Soviet Union's offensive in Afghanistan, and so was completely out of bounds to ordinary citizens - and more importantly archaeologists. In the 1950s the Soviets diverted water from the Oxus River to create the Karakum Canal to enable cotton to be grown in the region. The Karakum Canal caused a double environmental blow. The draining of the Oxus River not only resulted in the drying up of the Aral Sea, but may have condemned Merv's monuments to death. The raised water table has led to a "greening" of the desert. Formerly dry barren land is now covered in grass. Rising damp is eating away the monuments, and large chunks have already disappeared.

I was so happy when students showed interest during my presentations that it inspired me to do even more. I taught them about traditional Turkmen traditions, including our national dance. They also learned how to say a few phrases in my language. It’s a great pleasure to be an ambassador! —Darya (FLEX, Turkmenistan), hosted by the Mikell family (AL)

Thanks for watching....... 1) Abadan 2) Ashgabat 3) Balkanabat 4) Baýramaly 5) Daşoguz 6) Magdanly 7) Mary 8) Tejen 9) Türkmenabat 10) Türkmenbaşy Turkmenistan formerly also known as Turkmenia, is one of the Turkic states in Central Asia. Turkmenistan is bordered by Afghanistan to the southeast, Iran to the south and southwest, Uzbekistan to the east and northeast, Kazakhstan to the northwest and the Caspian Sea to the west. Present-day Turkmenistan covers territory that has been at the crossroads of civilizations for centuries. In medieval times Merv (today known as Mary) was one of the great cities of the Islamic world, and an important stop on the Silk Road, a large road used for trade with China until the mid-15th century. Annexed by the Russian Empire in 1881, Turkmenistan later figured prominently in the anti-Bolshevik movement in Central Asia. In 1924, Turkmenistan became a constituent republic of the Soviet Union, Turkmen Soviet Socialist Republic (Turkmen SSR); it became independent upon the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991.[5] Turkmenistan's GDP growth rate of 11% in 2012 comes on the back of several years of sustained high growth, albeit from a very basic undiversified economy powered by export of a single commodity.[6] It possesses the world's fourth largest reserves of natural gas resources.[7] Although it is wealthy in natural resources in certain areas, most of the country is covered by the Karakum (Black Sand) Desert. Turkmenistan was ruled by President for Life Saparmurat Niyazov (called "Türkmenbaşy", "Leader of the Turkmens") until his sudden death on 21 December 2006. Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedow was elected the new president on 11 February 2007.
