Independence Day of the Republic of Tajikistan

On September 9, a public holiday is celebrated in Tajikistan – Independence Day. Exactly On September 9, 1991, the independence of this state was declared. Since then, Independence Day is considered a major holiday, a non-working day and is celebrated every year.

From the second half of the XIX century. the territory of Tajikistan was occupied by the Russian Empire. After the Bolsheviks seized power, the population of Tajikistan, like other peoples of Central Asia, resisted the Red Army, but could not win. Since 1924, the country has been part of Uzbekistan as the Tajik Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic. However, five years later, Tajikistan was granted the status of a separate republic. When the USSR began to fall apart, Tajikistan began to declare independence. The first step towards this was taken in 1990, namely on August 24, when the Declaration “On State Sovereignty of the Tajik SSR” was signed. The statement “On the state independence of the Republic of Tajikistan” did not take too long. It happened on September 9, 1991.

Today, Tajikistan is a country rich in natural resources, 93% of its territory is occupied by mountain ranges, and about 50% is located at an altitude of more than 3000 m above sea level. It is interesting that the ancient Silk Road passed along this picturesque region. Tourists who love climbing mountains, as well as lovers of skiing, must visit this country.
