August 31, 2016 marks the 25th independence anniversary of the Kyrgyz Republic. The process of approval of the independent Kyrgyz state was sometimes developing in complicated economic, social and political conditions. However, the people has proved its striving for the path of freedom, democracy and progress. Even the main idea of the famous national epic “Manas” was also the people’s striving for its independence. This purpose has been persevering over the centuries and leading the Kyrgyz people through all the troubles and misfortunes, retaining the spirit of the people, its faith for a better future.

Political movements and politicians come & go, but luckily the naturally good & peaceful folks most always survive! 
Seeing reminders like this makes us feel so fortunate to live in a stable, peaceful environment, no???
Nice work!

Interesting set, Antonio !
The white house in #4 is such an great example of architectural imperialism. Build as a symbol of power...
I can't say that I like this style, but it is always interesting, to notice how political regimes influenced the architecture
in their main eras.
