Culture and traditions

Tajikistan culture

The culture of Tajikistan formed over several thousand years while it has absorbed many ideas from Zoroastrianism and Islam. Unlike other Central Asian countries, Tajikistan culture is quite close and similar to Afghanistan and Iran culture. Tight ties with Persia have left a profound impact on the literature and arts of Tajikistan. Meanwhile, 20th-century Soviet impact produced the explicit documentation of local practices. Although decades of conflict have left deep scars on the national consciousness, the mood in recent times has been cautiously optimistic.
