Dushanbe ( Tajik : Душанбе , Duşanbe ) is the capital and largest city of Tajikistan. Dushanbe means Monday in the Tajik language.   It was named this way because it grew from a village that originally had a popular market on Mondays. As of 2016 [update] , Dushanbe had a population of 802,700.
Historically a small village, Dushanbe was made the capital of the Tajik Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic in 1924. Until 1929, the city was known in Russian as Dyushambe ( Russian : Дюшамбе , Dyushambe ), and from 1929 to 1961 as Stalinabad ( Tajik : Сталинобод , Stalinobod ).
Situated at the confluence of two rivers, Varzob and Kofarnihon , Dushanbe is the capital of Tajikistan. Although archaeological remnants dating to the 5th century BC have been discovered in the area, there is little to suggest that Dushanbe was more than a small village until the early 20th century.
