First, you will visit the Turkmenistan National Museum and then will head to Nissa historical complex which consists of two archaeological monuments - Old and New Nissa. Old Nissa once was the center of Parthia. The tour will proceed to the unique natural phenomenon of Turkmenistan – Darvaza. Just in the middle of the desert, you will see the unique scene of a circular large crater with burning gas that never goes out.
