Nawruz in Bishkek
There is no holiday quite like Nawruz. People come together to celebrate: spring’s coming, nature’s blooming, the year’s beginning.
But it’s not just nature. Kyrgyzstan is mindbogglingly diverse: there are in excess of 120 different ethnic groups. Nawruz is the time when people come together. They dance to each other’s music. They eat each other’s food. They share, they cherish humanity.
Nawruz is simply the jolliest, most spectacular holiday in Kyrgyzstan.
