Osh holidays

Osh is Kyrgyzstan’s second largest city and is often referred to as the ‘capital of the south’. It is believed to be one of the oldest cities in Central Asia; the Sulayman mountain in the centre of the city has numerous stone inscriptions and evidence of an Iron Age settlement on its southern slope. In the 10th century, Osh was known as a centre for silk production and was an important point on the Great Silk Road, which led to China, India and Afghanistan.

Osh bazaar has occupied the same site on the banks of the Akbura river for 2,000 years, the atmosphere and activity reflecting its long heritage. Whether buying or just browsing, a visit to the bazaar captures a sense of Kyrgyzstan’s bygone days.
