All about Kyrgyzstan

Living abroad I realized that some people never have heard Kyrgyzstan or do not know much about it.

The idea of this group is to share information about Kyrgyzstan..

Briefly about the country:
▪ Population: about 5.7 millions
▪ Location: borders with Kazakhstan to the north, Uzbekistan to the west, Tajikistan to the southwest and China to the east.
▪ Government: unitary parliamentary republic
▪ GDP per capita: 2372 USD (to compare Russia 18100 USD, Sweden 40900 USD (2013)

Some useful links:
▪ Information about Kyrgyzstan in wiki http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kyrgyzstan

For people from Kyrgyzsta: you are welcome to share anything interesting about economy, politics, culture, traditions, travelling of Kyrgyzstan.
