Navruz is a holiday that is celebrated by people from diverse ethnic communities and religious backgrounds for thousands of years.

For the Tajik community, however, Navruz is very special and is known as spiritual New Year.

The word “Navruz” means “new day”, and it occurs at the Vernal Equinox, which marks the commencement of spring. Normally, it falls on or around 21 March, but the date can vary. And in Tajikistan, people celebrate for a full week.

During Navruz holiday people wear colourful clothing and march in the streets for Navruz.  Navruz in Tajikistan is all about national identity and national unity.

Tajik national university widely celebrated this holiday. Each faculty of the university, on the occasion of Navruz holiday, prepared a variety of exhibitions, food, exciting performances, as well as the ensemble “Navruz” prepared a bright concert program.
