Naryn ( Kyrgyz Нарын ) is an old garrison town on the Silk Road in Central Kyrgyzstan ( Central Asia ).

It is located about 140 km (as the crow flies ) southwest of the large Lake Issyk Kul on both sides of the Naryn River , which flows through the town in a picturesque gorge, at around 2050  m above sea ​​level . According to calculations, 40,065 inhabitants lived in Naryn, which is the administrative center of the Naryn region , in 2019.

In the vicinity of Naryn there are canyons with red rocks, the valley of the Naryn river and a natural lake (40 km from the city) where large and small rivers flow into the Naryn. From Naryn the national road EM-07 (formerly Soviet A365) leads through the Central Kyrgyz highlands via Atbaschy and the Torugart Pass ( 3752  m ) to China . This traffic connection, which was laid out as a runway in 1906, follows one of the branches of the old Silk Road and is now the most important connection from Kyrgyzstan to Kashgar in Xinjiang and on to China. In a side valley branching off from this road, about 80 km south of Naryn, there is the interesting Tash Rabat , a well-preserved former caravanserai from the 15th century .

There is a University of Central Asia campus in Naryn . The city's public transport is provided by the Naryn trolleybus . This makes Naryn the smallest city in the world with a trolleybus line.
