The Participants


The Silk Road is alive!

Nation: Tajikistan
National Day: 18.09.00



Desert and glaciers - the Pamir Mountain range and its deep valleys are rich in natural resources but difficult to reach. Contrasts are typical for this Central Asian country. "Crossroads" - the motto of the Tajik pavilion - characterise the country and its presentation at EXPO. The cultural heritage of the Silk Road is demonstrated by the combination of traditional production methods with computer-aided technology. The blending of Islam, Christianity and Buddhism can be explored in the arts and crafts section or in the Tajik tea house.

Discover the contrasting natural worldson a climbing wall which simulates the climate of a glacier.
