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.

Different style of visual art. More than 10 studios. Also you can see artworks of the one of the oldest anb greatst artist of Tajikistan, Sabzali Murodzodai Sharif.
