Bishkek is probably one of the greenest cities I’ve ever encounted. It’s peppered with parks – large and small – where families and couples come out, to enjoy the warm weather and have some ice cream.

In the center of the city, on the main square, they’ve recently built a set of singing fountains that can give the Bellagio in Vegas a run for its money. Synchronized to classical and national music, with multi-colored lights giving it a disco-effect, they draw thousands of people every night. And for a good reason – it is a beautiful sight.
