A Gazetteer of Ashgabat Street Names

Posted by apm-wa on 15 June 2018 in English (English)

I have posted a Gazetteer of Ashgabat Street Names which represents hours and hours of digging through Russian- and Turkmen-language materials in search of information on where these street names came from. In the course of this research over the past three years I have learned a great deal about Ashgabat’s and Turkmenistan’s history, and hope others will take time to browse the material collected so far.

Location: Köpetdag etraby, Ashgabat, Turkmenistan

Incredible research project! I’m astounded by the amount of work that went into this.

Hats off, this is superb work. In fact it deserves a wider audience than just that of the OSM wiki, I would think.

Wonderful, give your wife my thanks for all her work. The work you’ve done in Turkmenistan will be long appreciated.
