The territory of Tajikistan from the most ancient times has laid on the important historical routes of the Silk Road connecting the East and the West helping not only to exchange goods but also ideas, cultures and people. Very famous objects along the entire Silk Road were the weapons made by Soghd craftsmen. Very popular were leather products and jewelry, silk fabrics and colored salts. Soghd exported amazing "golden peaches", white and yellow cherries, sheep and graceful swift –footed racers.
Best Time to visit the Country:
As summers are ferociously hot and winters bitterly cold, spring (April to June) and autumn (September to November) are the best seasons to visit Tajikistan, especially for the Tajik Ferghana Valley, Dushanbe and southern part of the country. But if you are planning to go to the mountain (trekking, hiking, climbing, jeep-tours etc.) the best time for the visit is second part of June- early October. When you go to the mountains, always be prepared for abrupt changes in the weather. Bring good raingear (especially in May, early June and in late October), a fleece and thermal underwear.
Any person traveling to Tajikistan requires a passport or equivalent document and valid entrance visa (except for the citizens of some former USSR countries), issued by the competent authorities of Republic of Tajikistan representing the Ministry of Foreign Affairs or its offices abroad. Passport should be valid for at least 6 months after date of departure. A letter of invitation (or Confirmation of invitation) is necessary for visits to Tajikistan. You must obtain this before you apply for your visa. Tajikistan issues visas upon arrival at the Dushanbe Airport, or second option for obtaining your visa - at a Tajik Embassy. When you arrive at the Dushanbe Airport, go to the consular office before you clear passport control. You will need to present your passport, your Confirmation of invitation (letter of invitation), and the appropriate visa fee. You should also carry a few passport photos. Depending on what flight you arrive on, you may have to queue to get your visa. Tajik visas cannot be obtained at land borders, so if you are arriving overland you must obtain your visa in advance from an embassy.
