Afghanistan: Travel/Tourist Information Guide
Afghanistan is centred in the heart of Asia. It borders with Pakistan, Iran, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan, and it has a short border with China as well, but it is inaccessible. The capital of Afghanistan is Kabul. In the last 2.000 years, Afghanistan has been the main place for many powerful empires. However, in the last 30 years Afghanistan is in chaos, mainly because of the major wars that are taking place on its territory. It is considered as a poor nation compared to others.
But even though we hear about Afghanistan only because of the wars, for the adventurous traveler it is an amazing place to visit. There are a lot of sights that will bring pleasure such as the Minaret of Jam, North of Herat, the Buddhist sculptures at Bamiyan, the Gardens of Babur and many other.
