Blauw vierkantje - illu Stantours
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 and Shaman 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.
