The city is amazing! So many nice constructions and buildings. But it lacks a real skyline so i give it a 7/10.

4/10

City looks liveless and unfriendly for pedestrians.
Most likely designed to please the number 1 citizen - Mr Turkmenbasha.

I've see this spelled as "Ashkabad" ? The clean bright and open plazas remind me of Astana, Kazahkstan. Not much of a skyline, no, but all of the buildings are very beautiful.

4.0 will probably double within couple of decades.

Officially Ashgabat in English and Aşgabat in Turkmen:



Otherwise looks like a very beautiful city, although too sterile. 7/10 for the skyline.
