Ashgabat New Year Tree Turns Out to Be the Highest in Central Asia


The highest spruce tree in 2020 among the countries of Central Asia was recognized as the main tree of Turkmenistan, according to MIR 24.

Let us recall that the height of the Ashgabat New Year tree, together with the star decorating its top, is 41 meters, and the width is 16 meters. It is installed on the square in front of the Alem Cultural and Entertainment Center. Dressed with colorful balls, beads, firecrackers, sparkling tinsel and garlands, it has become one of the most attractive symbols of the coming year.

A tree in Tashkent (Uzbekistan) is in second place, its height is 36 meters, and its diameter is 13 meters.

Nur-Sultan (Kazakhstan) and Bishkek (Kyrgyzstan) close the “triple”; in these two capitals, the height of the tree was only 25 meters.

The authorities of the capital of Tajikistan this year decided not to install a Christmas tree in the central square of the city.
