Bishkek has micro districts from #3 to #12. Ever wondered where microdistricts 1 and 2 are in Bishkek? Did you know that Bishkek architects had designed more than 50 (!) microdistricts since the end of 1950s? Who was meant to live in all these concrete panel apartment blocks in the south of the city? What was the government plan to ensure accessibility of public services such as schools, hospitals, shops and parks to all residents?

Join us for a walk around the southern microdistricts of Bishkek that grew rapidly between 1960s-80s. Learn about the urban development, witness the slow paced life in residential areas, hear local stories, discover some of the soviet era art and architecture as well as the modern street art...
