Kyrgyz History

If you suddenly saw the need to learn more about the history of Kyrgyzstan, then take a car for rent and travel in one. Before your travel, we consider it necessary to tell you a little about the most important thing in history. Of course, it is impossible to tell the whole story in an article, but it is better to hear it from the guide and local residents, while receiving full answers from them to your questions on tour. The history of our Kyrgyzstan is rich in events and seems endless.

On the tour, our clients visit the gorges with inscriptions on the walls. These inscriptions will tell you about the ancient times of the existence of nomads. These were people with a nomadic lifestyle. When they were moving, they took with them all the yurts, household utensils, cattle. The history of our country is 2000 years old, and in written records, the history begins in 201 BC.

Our travelers have a good opportunity to rent a car and go to the mountains to see the development of art and culture. In this case, it is the Gallery of Rock Art in the Issyk-Kul region, in Cholpon-Ata. In this location, you can understand the way of life of the Bronze Age. There are depicted on the walls goats, bulls, horses and all animals, scenes of ordinary life such communication, dances, rituals, hunting.

Today, based on ancient Chinese writings, we understand that the Kyrgyz were mentioned in 201 BC. And so our ancient history stretches from 1000 BC before 300 AD. There is also a chronicle "Historical Notes", which contains information about the Kyrgyz. This chronicle tells about five people who tried to conquer the Hunnu. Then, the historian Bang Gu, in his chronicle Han Shu, also talks about our people. "East Turkestan was the state of the ancient Kyrgyz" this is how scientists of our day say.

Further, people tend to believe that the period from 1200 to 1400 was marked by tragic events. The reasons of tragic events were the Mongol invasions and their destruction of a rather developed Turkic culture. Also on the car for rent tour, you will learn about the Yenisei Kyrgyz. In 1207, the Yenisei Kyrgyz were under the rule of Chenghiz Khan. Further, in the 12-15 centuries, there are continuous trade with Persian, Arab and Turkic representatives as a result many nomads begin to accept the religion of Islam.

The 15th century in history is marked by the resettlement of people from southern Siberia to the territory of the Kyrgyz. This is the reason for the lack of a state among the Kyrgyz from the 15th to the 19th century. There were leaders who tried to reunite the tribes so that there were states with a single ruler. However, to say that the attempts were successful would not be true because tribes arose with a political structure and views on the beginning of independence.

The 18th century and the beginning of the 20th century are the dates of the aspiration of the Kyrgyz people to become part of the Russian Empire. The northern part of Kyrgyzstan wanted much more of this annexation, because they suffered from both internal and external threats. Therefore, the peaceful annexation of the northern part took place, but a conquering approach was applied to the south. Thus came the end of the nomadic way of life and the beginning of the agricultural and civil image.

A new event in history at the beginning of the 20th century, in 1917 the Bolsheviks put an end to the power of the Russian Empire. With the advent of the Bolsheviks, they abolished the exploitation of people and declared the equality of people. The Soviet Union influenced the development of political, cultural life, education. Kyrgyzstan became an autonomous region at the time of the Soviet Union. During the reign of the Bolsheviks, believers of any religion suffered because it was forbidden to believe in God, which led to an increase in the murder of innocent people.

The next important event happened in 1991, it was the collapse of the Soviet Union. Kyrgyzstan became independent. The people had a desire to finally become independent, but the result was a decline in living standards, unemployment and a crisis in political, economic and social life. However, Kyrgyzstan also created its own flag and anthem after gaining independence. The country became part of the UN in 1992, and in 1993 adopted its own Constitution. In 2005 and 2010, two tragic events took place in the history of our country. These two revolutions occurred because the presidents did not satisfy the people with their rule.

Kyrgyzstan today is a wonderful and stable country. The tourist destination is more than developed.
