A perfect place
for adventures

This is the fourth largest city of Kyrgyzstan, located at the mouth of the river of the same name and in a surprisingly picturesque area - on one side it is surrounded by snowy peaks of Terskey-Alatau, and on the other side of the azure Issyk-Kul.

It is known for its wonderful sandy beaches, high mountain resorts and thermal springs. But not only natural beauty beckons tourists here, Karakol is rich in its history, extraordinary sights and even a couple of very real wonders!

From its very inception, the city was a place where scientific and technological progress was concentrated in the country: the country's first meteorological station and scientific library were opened, research expeditions were formed. Its main attraction is the memorial of the great scientist N.M. Przewalski, located on a hill with a stunning view of the coast.

You can feel the breath of antiquity in the area of ​​Chon-Koisu. Seven centuries ago, a medieval city stood here, but the lake was advancing and now only the remains of ancient buildings can be seen on the shore. Another miracle of Karakol is the Dungan Mosque, dating from the beginning of the last century - it was built without a single nail in the style of a Buddhist temple.

Finally, the most unusual place that attracts tourists like a magnet is the building of the Russian Orthodox Church of the Holy Trinity. Here is the legendary Tikhvin Icon of the Mother of God with bleeding wounds, attacked by invaders.
