Background: Ashkhabad - the capital of Turkmenia. This garden-like city is described as twice-born. 19 years ago a most powerful earthquake shook the city. The entire country rendered help to people in distress.
Here is Ashkhabad of today. In the year of the earthquake the living space of the city mounted to half a million of square meters. Now this figure trebled.
Ashkhabad located in the area of deserts is now an important scientific centre of their research. On the border between the desert and the city where the lack of water had always been a problem, an artificial sea has been created. The city of Ashkhabad has big prospects for future. The architects here are engaged in designing new highly resistant houses. Ashkhabad called also the city of the Sun, is getting more and more beautiful.
