History

History of Kyrgyzstan

The territory of modern Kyrgyzstan has always been a target for conquer for different conquerors at different times. For example troops of Gengis Khan also crossed this area and ominously influenced on the history of Kyrgyz people.

The first people appeared in this area about five thousand years ago, old stone carvings and the 3000-year-old town of Osh can support this fact. The nomadic people of the Kyrgyz first appeared in this area about 2000 years ago and they are famous for being one of the oldest tribe in Central Asia. They went south, coming from the Siberian region Yenisey and recognized the Kyrgyz Khanate at the beginning of the first millennium.

In the 6th century there was formed the Karakhanid Khanate from the majority of early Turkic tribes. One of the most important and flossoming cities was the town of Balasagun where nowadays you can also visit the Burana tower belonging to 11th century. It can take you only one-hour drive from Bishkek.

In the 13th century, Karakhanid statehood was conquered by Gengis Khan, who then formed the Mongol Empire. After the emperor Mongke's death the Khanate was divided into many smaller parts, and the territory of Kyrgyzstan became dominated by the Chagatai Khanate, the second son of the deceased emperor.

Further history of the Kyrgyz people is closely connected with Uzbek people since this region was occupied by the Kokand Khanate formed by ethnic Uzbeks. But after 1873 - 1874 broad national uprising the region became dominated by the Russian Empire. Since 1936 it has become one of the Soviet republics of the USSR.

In 1991, the country obtained its independence from the Soviet Union and since then recognized as the Kyrgyz Republic.
