Culture

The Kyrgyz originally came from Sibiria; they moved from there to the south until they reached Tien-Shan mountains. They are traditionally Nomads that is why their life has always been connected with cattle, especially sheep and horses from the very beginning were important animals, but also cows and goats are being raised. Well, horse-back riding is one of the most important parts of Kyrgyz culture, and a Kyrgyz proverb even tells us: "If you would have only one day to live, you should spend at least half of it in the saddle."

Children already learn how to ride a horse when they just start walking, and their perfection in the saddle trained since very young age.  The boys will then soon also be caring for the sheep.

On the other hand, girls very early learn the traditional handicraft. In first place handicraft means the very beautiful carpets that are made with months- or year-lasting work. The most famous carpets are Shyrdak and Ala-Kiyiz, which are both made from felt and have colored patterns that are derived from nature.

And very important fact, those carpets are not the best-known product of Kyrgyz craft men. The symbol of the Kyrgyz life is the White Yurt. Traditional dwelling that is made from felt as well, and can be found everywhere on the pastures. It is still part of every-day life in modern Kyrgyzstan, even in cities: You find street-cafés everywhere, serving traditional meals, and also families in big towns still build the yurt on the most important holidays, such as the birth of a child, a marriage or a burial. Most significantly shown is the importance of the yurt in the flag of the Republic: It is red and in the centre shows symbolically the Tyunduk - the central part of the yurts roof, with its typical wooden circle and the crossed sticks in its middle.

The yurt is, consisting of a wooden construction and the felt covers and seems to be  a multifunctional, portable home that can be easily transported for a far distances. The whole thing is fixed with short leather-ribbons (instead of nails) and ropes. Inside of the yurt there are lots of decorations that are spread out everywhere: Carpets on the walls and on the floor, and the "Djuk" at the end of the yurt, opposite the entrance: It is bedsheets, that are spread at nighttime on the floor and offer a soft and warm place for the night, but during daytime they are kept stapled and covered with a beautiful cloth, forming the back part of the place for the most honored guest.

A little stove, which is used for cooking and warming the room usually stays in the middle of yurt.  And heating is absolutely necessary even in summer, especially if there is bad weather in those high-altitude regions. The space of the yurt is strictly separated and used. Left to the entrance there is the men's part - here are stored utilities for hunting, fishing, horse-back riding and everything for the sheep. The women's part is on the right hand side - you can find kitchen utilities, and everything needed for handicraft and suing.
