Commie leftovers: Bishkek architecture

My amazing and adventurous trip to Kyrgyzstan and its capital Bishkek resulted in me realising – among good many other things – that it is way too easy to seek beauty where there is abundance of it.
Instead, try and look for it in places where there is lack of it.

Here are some examples of Bishkek’s architecture. I took these while strolling around this fascinating city – a city I never thought I will ever go to – a city I must return to.



This building was something like a leisure center with an indoor swimming pool. Hence the “wavey” stairs in front of it.


Through this corridor we got to a little local restaurant where we filled our stomachs to the top with delicious food for a very delicious price – around 1,50 euros.
