Kyrgyzstan is a country bordering the Caspian Sea in Central Asia. Kazakhstan borders it in the North and North, China in the East and South, and Tajikistan and Uzbekistan in the South and West. Most of the borders of Kyrgyzstan are along the mountain crests. Bishkek is the capital of the nation.
Historical Background of Kyrgyzstan
The Kyrgyz people, a Muslim Turkish ethnic group, make up around three-fourths of the nation's population. The Kyrgyz people's history in Kyrgyzstan may go back to at least the 17th century. Russian-Soviet Kyrgyzstan was conquered by Russian Tsarist forces in the 19th century and became a part of the Russian Empire. Kyrgyzstan, formerly part of the (union) Republic of the Soviet Union, declared independence after years of struggle on August 31, 1991.
Climate of Kyrgyzstan
The vast distance between Kyrgyzstan and the oceans and the dramatic differences in elevation from the surrounding plains have a major effect on the climate in the nation. The contrast in the temperature and landscape of the country's mountainous core is noteworthy because deserts and plains border Kyrgyzstan's Northern, Western and Southern borders. In addition to its location in high-temperature areas, the lower parts of its surrounding mountains also sparkle. The amount of precipitation in the western and north-facing slopes of the nation increases with the height of the hills. The summers are hot and dry in the valleys, with an average temperature of 82°C in July (28 degrees Celsius). The average temperature in January is 0.5 degrees Fahrenheit (18 degrees Celsius).
Economy of Kyrgyzstan
Kyrgyzstan residents have traditionally maintained their livestock and engaged in farming to augment their revenue. The Republic became a supplier of nonferrous metals, especially antimony and mercury ores. By the end of the 20th century, a producer of equipment, light industrial items, hydroelectric power, and foodstuffs was a global leader in this field. Gold mining has grown more significant, and Kyrgyzstan has substantial coal and oil and natural gas reserves. More than three-quarters of the electric power generated in the country is hydroelectric electricity.
Culture Life in Kyrgyzstan
Kyrgyzstan has a well-developed TV network and a big radio network, and theatres. Starting in 1940, Kyrgyz cultural life was significantly influenced by the rich literary traditions of the area (including lyrical poetry) and the creation of a contemporary literary language.
The area was also important in its shift from the Arabic script to the Roman alphabet and ultimately to the Cyrillic alphabet (with diacritical marks). The Kyrgyz Republic planned to switch back to utilizing the Roman alphabet in the 1990s as part of a regional effort with other Turkish-speaking countries in Central Asia. The lengthy poem Epic Manas, and heroic and lyric poetry, continue to be performed by Kyrgyz folk singers in accompaniment of the komuz, a three-stringed instrument plucked like a lute.
