Boulder-Dushanbe Sister Cities
Our friendship with Dushanbe was born during the Cold War and has survived the break-up of the Soviet Union, civil war and the painful birth of a new nation. With goals of international friendship, peace and understanding, the people of Dushanbe gave Boulder a magnificent Tajik Teahouse in 1987. The Dushanbe Teahouse is now a Boulder institution and is visited by more than 100,000 people annually.
Since our community has benefited and valued from our gift, we've sought out ways to return the favor. In 2009, Boulder began construction on the Cyber Café and Friendship Center in Dushanbe, Tajikistan. It's dedicated to the people of Dushanbe on behalf of the people of Boulder.
