Tajikistan Celebrates the Beginning of Spring

On March 20-21, people in Tajikistan celebrate Navruz (Nowruz), an ancient festival that marks the beginning of spring and is often referred to as the “Persian New Year”. 

Icekandar congratulates [ru] the readers of his blog:

Here comes Navruz, the best and most cheerful holiday! This holiday is not like other celebrations. [Navruz] means a lot to our country and our people. Navruz is like a bridge that links contemporary Tajikistan with our ancestors and their culture…

Happy Navruz to everyone!

News website ozodagon.tj presents several videos showing how the festival is celebrated in Dushanbe, the capital of Tajikistan.

Our work building bridges across cultures, languages and perspectives is more urgent than ever before.
