Spent several days, and many hours, just wandering around the artists' colony, which is just a non-descript three-story Soviet building. If you have the time and inclination, you could get lost here for days.

This is a working artist collective with some great art. My favorite Tajik artist is probably Eraj Olimov. Farrukh Khojaev is probably the most well known modern Tajik artist and is quite prolific.

It is a great shame that this place is so difficult to find and sadly lots of local people do not seem to know about it! Some of Tajikistan's most celebrated artists have their studios here and if you can get by in Tajik, Farsi...More
