Get to Know Ashgabat and What It Offers for Expats

Renowned as one of Central Asia's most stunning locations, Ashgabat's landscape is dominated by shining gold domes, marble palaces and parkland. The city has also enjoyed a transformation in recent years. As the capital and largest city of Turkmenistan, it holds a number of world records, for the largest Ferris wheel and the largest fountain complex. Expats' accommodation is usually found in low-rise apartment buildings, while the climate is continental and the major crime rate is low. The capital has a number of international restaurants and those specializing in local cuisine. If you are relocating with kids, the English-speaking QSI Ashgabat International School offers a high-quality education for elementary and secondary students.

InterNations is the largest global network for expatriates, with communities in 420 cities around the world. Meet fellow global minds in your city of residence or get to know local expatriates before you're moving or traveling abroad and never feel like a stranger. InterNations makes it easy for you to stay in touch with your expat friends, both online and offline, so you can grow your network of friends and contacts from all over the world.

    When my partner and I decided to move to Ashgabat, I was really anxious. That has changed now that I've met so many other expats on InterNations.
