Central Asia (often used in Central Asia). This is the name for the ancient land on the Asian territory of the CIS, widely spread from the Caspian Sea in the west to the Kyrgyz-Chinese border in the east. It includes four states: Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Turkmenistan. In the Middle Ages, the Khorasan area was located in the territory of present-day southern Turkmenistan, Khorezm occupied the areas around the Amudarya delta, and the rest of the territory stretching beyond the Amu Darya was called Maverannahr (Zarechye) in Arabic.
Central Asia is a vast land full of natural contrasts. Hot, arid deserts Karakum and Kyzylkum occupy a large area, on which formerly only small green shreds flashed oases. In our time, irrigated fields and oases are greatly expanded due to the waters of numerous artificial canals. And yet, boundless, flat, clay takyrs, along which you can go, as on a good level road, are adjacent to the slowly flowing sand dunes. And in the south there are powerful young mountains of Alay, Turkestan, Zeravshan, Hissar ranges, Pamir and Tien Shan, with the highest impregnable peaks, eternal snows and glaciers.
Here you will see the drying wells and turbulent, rapacious, crystal clear mountain rivers feeding the large water-bearing arteries of the region - Vakhsh, Zeravshan, Kashkadarya, Syrdarya, and one of the longest, wide, fast and capricious rivers of the world - the Amu Darya; bitter-saline, solonchak, disappearing in summer reservoirs and transparent high-mountainous lakes, the largest of which is Issyk-Kul.
Central Asia and Kazakhstan - one of the most interesting and specific macroregions of the former USSR. Its indigenous peoples have much in common in culture, way of life and traditions, which can be explained by the commonality of historical destinies. For example, these families are characterized by large families, which significantly affects the demographic situation in the region. Here live Kazakhs, Kyrgyz, Tajiks, Turkmens, Uzbeks, Tatars, Uighurs, Karakalpaks, as well as Russians, Ukrainians, Byelorussians, Germans, Armenians, etc. Of these, Kazakhs, Turkmens, Tajiks, Kirghiz, Karakalpaks and Uzbeks had their own statehood (Karakalpaks formed the Karakalpak Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic as part of Uzbekistan). Uzbeks, Kazakhs, Kirghiz, Turkmens, Karakalpaks, Tatars and Uighurs speak the languages of the Turkic group of the Altai family. Tajiks, Kurds, Baluchis, Persians speak the languages of the Iranian group of the Indo-European family. The main professed religions are Islam and Christianity.
