Dushanbe is the capital of Tajikistan. Dushanbe is a clean, green European city with wide, tree-lined streets and pale, elegant buildings lend it an air of faded prosperity, and there are plenty of cafés in which to enjoy tea and local sweets ..
For Westerners there are only a few ways to fly into Dushanbe. See: Massive Statue of Somoni (who the curency is named for) on Prospekt Aiani. Apparently the crown is 10 kilograms of tajik gold. Beware the police at the bottom who may ask for money.
You can visit the Museum of Antiquities on the main square. It's quite old fashioned, and include a number of exhibits that detail the country's history.
