Located on the northeast part of Afghanistan, Faizabad was historically remote due to bad road connections, which has helped to its local culture intact. To the present day two bazaars still function in Faizabad where they trade diverse items like cotton cloth and cutlery and provisions like tea, sugar and salt. Part of the historic architecture is in ruins, but other forts, mosques and shrines are still intact and tell the history of the region.
Jalalabad, in the eastern part of the country, is considered one of the most beautiful cities in Afghanistan thanks to the large green areas and surrounding water. It was an outpost for Ahmad Shah Durrani, the founder of modern Afghanistan, who used the city during his military campaigns in India. The architecture in Jalalabad is beautiful, from the Mausoleum of King Amanullah Khan to mosques and the Nangarhar University.
Located in northern Afghanistan, the small town of Samangan used to be a medieval caravan stop. It was also part of the territories where Buddhist expansion reached around the fourth and fifth centuries. The place called Takht-e-Rustam on a hill near the town is a main example of the period’s architecture, with a mix of the Buddhist style. Every Thursday the weekly market takes place, an ancient traditional activity still preserved.
Located north of the capital Kabul, the small town of Bagram was in ancient times an important passageway of the Silk Road for merchants coming from ancient India. The earliest mentions refer to a Persian settlement, followed by the Greek-influenced city planning and further Arab rulers.
Located in central Afghanistan, Bamiyan is one of the last cities where the Buddhist expansion reached. Another culturally rich place, at the crossroads of East and West, Bamiyan’s archeology reveals a mix of Turkish, Greek, Persian, Indian and Chinese influence. Famous for the giant Buddha statues, destroyed in 2001, later discoveries in the area include a few caves with wall paintings from the 5th and 9th centuries and another giant statue,

Afghanistan’s second largest city is one of the oldest known human communities, with an intricate history and culture. One of the most interesting places to see in Kandahar is the Friday Mosque of Kandahar, a holy Islamic place of worship considered of utmost importance in the country.
Considered one of the oldest cities in the world, Balkh in northern Afghanistan was named by the Arabs ‘The Mother of Cities.’ At the crossroads between eastern Asia and the Middle East, Balkh was heavily influenced by the Buddhist culture before the Arab invasion. The ancient ruins of the city include Buddhist constructions and fortifications evoking the old Asian culture.
The capital of Afghanistan and the country’s largest city, Kabul has a millenary history, as it exists for more than 3,500 years.
