Holidays

Here you can read useful information about holidays that people in Kyrgyzstan celebrate. We would like to admit that we offer car rent service during tours. Twice a year, Kyrgyzstan celebrates the feast of the thanksgiving sacrifice. It does not have an exact calendar date, and is usually celebrated in the spring, when the first greenery appears in the mountains and the lambing of sheep begins, as well as in late autumn, when migrating from pastures and preparing for winter. The sacrifice, which is usually performed by ail cattle, is brought to the pagan deity "Zher-Suu tayuu" , at the end of the ceremony, a prayer is sent  with a request to protect us from natural disasters and misfortunes.

Even completely Islamic holidays - "Ramadan" and "Kurman ait" among the Kyrgyz people were somewhat transformed, covered with a light touch of zoroastrianism and paganism.

At the present stage, unfortunately, all the traditions of ethnic culture are very much changed by the increasingly advancing urbanization and Europeanization of society. An important role in this is played by almost 100% literacy of the population. However, folk traditions that are carefully preserved and passed down from generation to generation, even in a changed state, still exist and continue to arouse sincere interest.
