Afghanistan is a landlocked country in South Asia, bordered by Iran, Pakistan, India, China, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, and Tajikistan. During its thousand-year history, the lands of Afghanistan were part of the First Persian Empire, Parthian Empire, Seleucid Empire, and the Greco-Bactrian Kingdom. The country acquired its statehood only in the 18th century.

The climate here is subtropical continental, cold in winter and dry hot in summer. The amplitude of temperature fluctuations is very high, it changes rapidly, and transitions from winter to summer, from night to day, take place just as fast.

"A day in Afghanistan is like a week at home." – Ross Kemp, an English actor.

Only Islamic rules bind the people in Afghanistan, and they follow a rigorous version of them. The natives are friendly, but only to those who attend their traditions. The prohibition of alcohol is one of the local characteristics, yet the addiction to smoking is widespread.

Traveling to all areas of Afghanistan is dangerous because of critical levels of kidnappings, bombings, landmines, and terrorist attacks.
