A beautiful small country right in the middle of Asia. About 80 % of the land is mountainous, and little earthquakes happen very often.There is a very interesting alpine lake(Issyk Kul) that does not freeze even in winter.
Kyrgyzstan was part of the Soviet Union until 1991, and a lot of people(especially in the capital-Bishkek) speak russian. There is also a pretty large russian population. Kyrgyz people are a mix of mongolians and europeans, therefore not all of them look completely asian. Some have black, light or dark brown hair, brown, green, or (very rarely) blue eyes.
Russian influence played a significant role in kyrgyz culture and lifestyle, and even now most of the tv shows, magazines, and media shown in Kyrgyzstan is russian.
Kyrgyzstan is a tiny and not well-known, but gorgeous country!!!
