Living in Peshawar

Peshawar is a city of around 2.5 million people, situated in the far north of Pakistan. It is the capital of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, once known as the Northwest Frontier Province, and Peshawar is still known as “The City on the Frontier”. It sits close to the Afghan border at the ancient Khyber Pass and has long been an important crossroads in Asia. Its position has resulted in the city being one of the most vibrant and diverse in the region. It is an ancient center, with the city’s Bala Hisar Fort being one of the most historic places in the city. The Old City Center itself, with the Qissa Khwani Bazaar, Clock Tower Square and the Mohabbat Khan Mosque is a major draw for visitors and a melting pot of different cultures and voices. To make sense of this disparate city, InterNations provides a platform for expats living in Peshawar and across the globe to connect and exchange information.
