Turkmenistan remains by far the most unexplored country
along the Silk Road. In the rainbow of colours that characterise
this vast strip of land stretching between China and Persia,
the Turkmen culture has preserved some of the most nomadic
traditions. Linking Afghan, Persian and the sophisticated
settled cultures of the Central Khanates, many items and
periods associated with Silk Road cultures have emerged
from largely nomadic Turcoman societies. This is evident
in Turkmenistan's fascinating
handicrafts, as well as it's strong attraction
toward Mysticism and
superstitions commonly associated with other Silk Road
for more general information on Turkmenistan.
