Kyrgyzstan is a country in Central Asia that borders China and gained its independence in 1991 with the fall of the Soviet Union. Being a nation rich in culture and history, Kyrgyzstan is a desirable place for foreigners to reside. More than 85 different mountain ranges make up Kyrgyzstan’s entire landscape, which accounts for more than 70% of its total area. This leads the country to often be described as the “Switzerland of Central Asia”. The famous Silk Road, a prehistoric trade route that connected China with Europe and the Middle East, is what makes the country a more attractive and interesting place. Travelers are intrigued by this exotic landscape due to the impact of the region’s commerce and culture even centuries later.
