Abadan (Abadan)

Abadan is a district of Ashgabat, the capital of Turkmenistan. Formerly a separate town in Ahal Province, in 2013 it was incorporated into Ashgabat as part of a program that expanded the capital's area by about 15%. It was founded in 1963 and bore the name Büzmeýin (Бюзмейн) until October 2002, when its name was changed by Turkmenistan's president Saparmurat Niyazov. The traditional Russian name of the town is Bezmein (Безмейн). The town's current mayor, Orazmyrat Garajaýew, was one of the approved candidates for the 2007 presidential election. There are about 50,000 people living in Abadan. There is a power plant where Saparmurat Niyazov, former president of Turkmenistan, used to work.

The town is served by a station on the national railway system.

Country - Turkmenistan

Flag of Turkmenistan
Turkmenistan ( or ; Türkmenistan, ), formerly known as Turkmenia, officially the Republic of Turkmenistan, is a country in Central Asia, bordered by Kazakhstan to the northwest, Uzbekistan to the north and east, Afghanistan to the southeast, Iran to the south and southwest, and the Caspian Sea to the west. Ashgabat is the capital and largest city. The population of the country is 5.6 million, the lowest of the Central Asian republics and one of the most sparsely populated in Asia.

Turkmenistan has been at the crossroads of civilizations for centuries. In medieval times, Merv was one of the great cities of the Islamic world and an important stop on the Silk Road, a caravan route used for trade with China until the mid-15th century. Annexed by the Russian Empire in 1881, Turkmenistan later figured prominently in the anti-Bolshevik movement in Central Asia. In 1925, Turkmenistan became a constituent republic of the Soviet Union, Turkmen Soviet Socialist Republic (Turkmen SSR); it became independent upon the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991.
