The history of the country begins in 201 BC as written in the Chinese Chronicles, and the ancient history itself stretches from 1000 BC to 300 AD. Much other information was given in the "Historical notes", which tells us information about 5 peoples who fought the Huns. Other notes were also given by the historian Ban Gu, in the Chronicles of Han Shu. Today, scientists say that East Turkestan was an ancient territory of the Kyrgyz.
Historians also suggest that the period from 1200-1400 is designated as a bloody period due to Mongol raids. They were able to conquer the already quite developed Turkic culture. Tourists can rent a car and learn how in 1207 the ancient Kyrgyz were Yenisei and were under the rule of the powerful Genghis Khan. Later in the 12th and 15th centuries, the nomads of the past years adopted the religion of Islam because of the vibes of Arab, Turkic and Persian merchants.
Go on tours with us and you will be able to find out how in the 15th century the country received massively resettled people from southern Siberia. Therefore, from the 15th century to the 19th century, the inhabitants did not have a single state. The tribes had the idea to unite and become a single state with one ruler. But the idea failed to materialize and eventually led to the birth of tribes with views on independence and a political system.
The Kyrgyz people wanted to become part of the Russian Empire from the 18th century to the 19th century. They also sent their ambassadors so that they could inform the leadership of the Russian Empire about their desire to join. The North of the Kyrgyz wanted to join because of constant attacks and threats. Since there were threats from both internal and external sides. But the South was against it and was forcibly annexed. All this eventually led to a sedentary lifestyle from nomadic and people began to engage in agriculture and became citizens.
The Bolsheviks came to seize power from the Russian Empire in the early 20th century in 1917. They declared the absence of exploitation of the people and wanted equality before each other. After that, the Soviet Union began to exist. The country began to develop political and cultural life, as well as educational facilities. The Kyrgyz people changed their statehood to an Autonomous region. The most tragic thing in this period was that people were not allowed to have a religion or believe in God. In the end, it all led to numerous murders.
In 1991, the Soviet Union ceased to exist and the country became independent. People decided to make plans for the future, but in the end it led to unemployment, a crisis, and a decline in the standard of living in the political, social, and economic spheres. as a result, after independence, the country had its own flag and anthem. In 1992, Kyrgyzstan became a member of the UN, and in 1993 approved the Constitution. In any case, the situation in Iran continued to be unstable and in 2005 and 2010 there were 2 revolutions and internal conflicts. The people were against the government's authority. Today, the country is quiet and peaceful, so it is a pleasure to spend tours here.
