Hello everybody. We are pupils from Sarband,Tajikistan. We
are very happy to write about our town.
"Our native town Sarband."
Our town is located in the southern part of our Motherland -
Tajikistan, on Vakhsh valley. It's on the left side of Vakhsh
River at height of 428 meters from a sea level. The distance
between our town and the capital of our republic is 117 kilometers.
The total number of the population of Sarband is more than 31
Our town is situated in the south and that's why
it is a sunny town. It is hot in summer more than 30-35 centigrade
It's cool in spring and autumn; sometimes it rains
but not often and not long. In winter it's not as cold as it
has to be. It snows twice or three times and the snow stay on
the ground no more than 2-3 days.
The difference between our town and Moscow is two hours.
The most significant historical events of our town took place
It's year of origin of our city...In this year began the construction
of our Hydro-Power Station. Before people lived in small huts.
And for the beginning the workers that came to built our Hydro-Power
Station also lived in tents and huts. But soon there begun to
appear the first new large houses and two-four storied buildings...
So was born a new town in Tajikistan. Before our town referred
to Kalininabad, and on February 2nd, 1992 it has been renamed
into Sarband, that in translation means Head.
The other most interesting thing is our Vocational School. #40.
It's more than 30 year old.
We are very proud of our vocational school....
The most well-known outstanding figures of our country were
graduated from this Educational institution...
For example the president of our country E.Sh. Rahmonov is the
graduator of the Sarband Vocational School#40.
