Excursion of Ashgabat
A tour of the city of Ashgabat begins with a visit to the Presidential Palace, Palace of Rukhyet, and Palace of Marriage. Then the tour continues to the modern Yildiz hotel. You can enjoy views of the city from a Ferris Wheel, visit the Constitution monument, Arch of Neutrality, Independence Park, Ertogrul Gaza Mosque, as well as sports facilities built for the Asian Games 2017.
You will also see Renaissance Square, a new administrative, business and cultural center of Ashgabat. Then the excursion continues with a visit to the fortress of Nissa, a sanctuary of Parthian Kings. UNESCO declared this fortress a World Heritage Site in 2007. Nissa was considered one of the first capitals of the Parthians. It was founded by Arshak I (reigned from 250 BC to 211 BC) and was generally considered to be the royal necropolis of the Parthian kings, although it was not established that the fortress in Nissa was the royal residence or the mausoleum. Following along the plan of the excursion, we move to the Mosque of Turkmenbashi Rukh in Kipchak (the biggest mosque in Central Asia). At this point your excursion comes to an end, leaving the most pleasant memories and impressions of Ashgabat, its monuments and inhabitants.
