Ashgabat is the capital and the largest city of Turkmenistan in Central Asia, situated between the Karakum Desert and the Kopet Dag mountain range.
Ashgabat has the world's highest concentration of white marble buildings.
With its lavish marble palaces, gleaming gold domes and manicured parkland, Ashgabat has turned itself into a showcase city. Built almost entirely from Turkmenistan’s oil and gas revenues.
