Stele 20 years Tadjik SSR in Dushanbe.

One-day excursion tours over Dushanbe.

"In the green valley between the majestic mountains
There is a city from the sun, plane trees live in it.
Oh, these plane trees! Trees are poets.
Trees are destiny. Trees are from the light.
Stand big. Stop - make noise.
Foliage flies around, but you are not sad.
In the scorching sun - shade and coolness.
For the birds you are a home, for the eyes you are a delight.»

Vladimir Peresedov.
