InterNations — A Community for American Expats in Dushanbe

Hello to all Americans in Dushanbe! Are you interested in getting to know fellow expats in Dushanbe? Looking for advice from other Americans, e.g. wondering if there are any bars in Dushanbe which will be showing your favorite baseball or American football team’s upcoming match or where to go in town for st■ turkey?

There’s no doubt about it: following years of heavy investment and busy building projects, Dushanbe has much to offer. The capital of Tajikistan is a quite green city known for its wide, tree-lined streets, beautiful opera house, local markets, and much more! With the bus and trolleybus (Marshrutka) system as well as a comprehensive road network, navigating your way around the city from one place to the next is simple. This also means that if you don’t want to live among the hustle and bustle of the center, you can enjoy a quieter life in the more residential areas, which are usually not far away from Dushanbe’s center.

Although Dushanbe has lots to offer, you might be wondering where and how you can meet other Americans in the city. Luckily, InterNations is here to make this easier for you! You’re warmly invited to join the InterNations community. Within our international network in Dushanbe, there’s a vibrant circle of American expats from all regions of USA, including New York City, Los Angeles, and beyond.
