Visit Kabul

Kabul, the capital of Afghanistan, is a bustling city filled with a rich history and culture. The city is home to over five million people and is situated at the crossroads of Central Asia. Kabul has long been an important trading center due to its location on the Silk Road, making it an interesting destination for travelers.

Visitors can explore many attractions in Kabul including Chihil Sutun Palace, which was built in 1776 by Timur Shah Durrani and now functions as a museum; or Babur Garden, founded by Babur as his first gardens outside India; or explore the National Museum of Afghanistan where visitors can see ancient artifacts dating back thousands of years.

An interesting historical fact about Kabul is that during World War II it was occupied by British forces from 1919 to 1929. During this time period the capital was greatly modernised with new infrastructure such as airports and railway lines being added. This allowed Kabul to become a major trading hub once again for countries all over Central Asia.
