									                        What’s on in Dushanbe

                     Within the ―German Weeks in Tajikistan‖ the German Embassy Dushanbe and
                     the Goethe Institute Tashkent invite you for two evenings in Majakowski theatre
                     and Bactria Cultural Centre:

                     You can find a lot in modern German theatre. In the theatre play „Der
                     Hässliche― by Marius von Mayenburg you’ll meet people who are fighting
                     between work, their appearance, identity and an ominous plug.
                     On Friday (17th September) in Majakowski theatre you will see the whole
                     play in Russian.

                     On Saturday (18th September) students under the supervision of the
                     German trainer Charlotte Siegerstetter, will perform the play in a
                     combination of Russian and German in Bactria.

                     Beginning on both days is 6pm.

Our specialty:
E-tickets are our specialty. We feature electronic ticketing for the international community in Tajikistan
An e-ticket (electronic ticket) is a paperless electronic document used for ticketing passengers, particularly in
the commercial airline industry. Virtually all major airlines use this method of ticketing.
The principal advantage of e-ticketing is that it reduces booking expense by eliminating the need for printing
and mailing paper documents. Another advantage is that it eliminates the possibility of critical documents
getting lost in the mail or being sent to the wrong address.
A passenger traveling on an electronic ticket is given a copy of the itinerary. This document is not a ticket, but
it indicates that you do have an electronic ticket.
For many people, the fact that you cannot lose the ticket is the saving grace of an electronic ticket. Many people
who have accidentally left their paper ticket at home or the office have been able to retrieve the information at
the airport.
Electronic tickets eliminate this possible stress, particularly for frequent travelers; not having to worry about a
forgotten ticket is a big advantage.
Eurotours GmbH has experience in cooperation with DHL, DHL Express, DHL Global Forwarding, Globus
Education, International Education Center and more then 260 international organizations, ministries, NGOs,
private companies etc.
