Mongolia has been one of the most amazing destinations I have been throughout the past 10 years. The country is incredibly unique. After spending 10 days in Mongolia and having spoken to many different people about this magical land I came to the conclusion that all you travellers need to go now! And this is why.1. Mongolian and Central Asian’s History
Chinngis Khan founded the largest imperium in square metres in the world ever. Mongolia’s tumultuous warrior is widely known for his fearless urge to conquer the world. Whether you like it or not, he has been a significant factor in the world’s history and Central Asia specifically. To get a better understanding of Mongolia and its nation, it was inevitable for me to dive into the history of Chinggis Khan’s and the Mongolian empire that stretched from Far East Asia to Venice.
Nowadays, Chinggis Khan is everyday business: hotels are named after the imperialist, cigars, vodka, bars, beer and more! Close to UB Chinggis has his very own 60 metres high giant silver statue. The statue is impressively huge. The whole entourage, the visitor centre and the statue with all its grandeur is so opposite of what we experienced while travelling in the country. And this is exactly the bizarreness that makes Mongolia so unique.
