Situated at the foot of the Kopet Dağ Moun-tains, Ashgabat, capital of Turkmenistan, lies in the Akhal Tekin oasis on the border of the Karakum Desert. The city was founded in 1881 on the remains of an ancient village and it has been playing an important part on regional level since 1885, when the construc-tion of the railway line connecting Turkmen-bashi, on the shores of the Caspian Sea, to Tashkent was started. After becoming capi-tal of the Turkmen Soviet republic in 1924, Ashgabat in the following years has gone through a very troubled period, caused by the strong tensions between the local lea-ders and the central authorities in Moscow.->
