Afghanistan is chiefly a mountainous country; the Hindu Kush and Kyber Pass, connecting Afghanistan and Pakistan, once a magnet for adventurous travellers.
Ahmad Shah Durrani unified the Pashtun tribes and founded Afghanistan in 1747. The country served as a buffer between the British and Russian Empires until it won independence from notional British control in 1919.
Afghanistan is a landlocked country.
The official languages of Afghanistan are Pashto and Dari, an Afghan dialect of Persian.
