Bagram is in a strategic location controlling access to the passes north of Kabul. Alexander the Great built a city called Alexandria in the Caucasus near here in the 4th century BCE and the Russians had a major base in the area when they invaded in the 20th century CE.
Today Bagram is the site of one of America's largest military bases. There's not much reason for a traveler to visit Bagram, and it's probably not the safest place to be either. If you are within the area, do not attempt to stop near the facilities and observe operations: this interest may be seen differently by others because the situation in Afghanistan is so volatile.
