In Kyrgyzstan there is an amazing period from the end of April to mid-May, when the valleys are painted scarlet against the backdrop of the snowy peaks of the Tien Shan, all this turns into a surreal picture. This is how poppies bloom leaving an indelible impression on the residents and guests of Kyrgyzstan.
