The largest exhibition ever devoted to Tajikistan in the West is to be visited at the National Museum of Asian Arts - Guimet! The cultural richness of this little-known country, in the shadow of its mediatized neighbors, is revealed with exceptional pieces. CultureSecrets invites you to discover them with your passes.
Since ancient times, Tajikistan has been strategically located at the heart of the trade networks, the passageways of various peoples and ethnic groups, and the conquests between the Middle East, the ancient world of steppes and oases, and Chinese Central Asia.
Its history is traced through numerous archaeological remains, among the collections of the Guimet Museum but also those of the National Museum of Tajikistan and the British Museum, exceptionally lent for the occasion. Leave for an incredible cultural journey. Your starting point: prehistory, with the construction of Sarazm, or "the beginning of the earth", around the 4th millennium BC. Your arrival: the end of the Samanid empire in 1005 with the influence of Islam and Buddhism.
Discover also the permanent collections of the Guimet museum and the exhibition "Nepal. Art of the Kathmandu Valley," thanks to your CultureSecrets passes.
Crossed by the ancient Silk Road, Tajikistan is 93% mountainous. More than half of its territory
