Tajikistan: Khujand – Museum of Sughd Region

The museum is housed in the restored Khujand Fortress (over-restored in my opinion) right in the heart of the Tajikistan’s second largest city. The fortress is on the bank of the Syrdarya river with massive city walls and from gate facing south. The museum has everything and anything related to the history and present of the Sughd region of northern Tajikistan,from all the ancient and medieval kingdoms that passed through here to the Soviet period and today.
