Short information on the town of Bishkek.

Bishkek, the capital of Kyrgyzstan, is situ­ated at 74°35' east and 42°50' north, rises 800 meters above sea level in the Chui Valley and lies north of the Kyrgyz Mountain Range. 20 kilometers north of the city is the Chu River, forming part of the border with Kazakhstan republics. Two rivers run through Bishkek, Ala-Archa in the west part of the city, and Alamedin in the east.
The city also boasts fairly good air quality (undoubtedly enhanced by idle facto­ries) although one's ability to breathe is threatened these days by aging vehicles and a growing population of cars. The central part of Bishkek is laid out in a grid pattern, with Ala-Too Square almost in the center, and the White House a few meters away. Under the watchful eye of transportation militia, traffic slows to a crawl from the part of Chui Prospect from Ala-Too Square to the White House.
Thanks to enlightened Russian and Soviet civic planners, Bishkek was and remains one of the greenest of the capitals of the former USSR. Over 20 parks with more than 150 species of trees dot the city, their colorful flora transforming them in the warm seasons into meccas of urban activity. 
Aside from being the capital of the country and an autonomous administrative district, Bishkek is the economic and cultural center of Kyrgyzstan. Its status is confirmed by the presence of international organizations, banks factories, trading companies, hotels, department store, universities, theaters, museums, galleries, and embassies consulates within the city.
