Tour to Uzbekistan – Explore the capital

The intersection of geography and history in Uzbekistan is part of what makes it a place of such intrigue and opportunity. If you have decided to visit this country, the best way for your start is to become acquainted with Tashkent. Tashkent is the capital of Uzbekistan since 1930. It is a city with long history and rich cultural traditions, boasting beautiful architecture of different times and mild climate. The word Tashkent in translation from uzbek language means “Stone town” and it was a crossroad of trade routes. The city was a part of various states through the history and has been preserved architectural monuments of many civilizations. A remarkable influence to the appearance of the city was made by USSR, which can be seen by huge marble building, museums and hotels. In 1966 there was devastating earthquake which destroyed lots of historical buildings, architectural monuments, however with the help of neighboring countries it was reconstructed, and from this time the history of eastern modern city starts. With the population of the more than 3 million Tashkent has many things to offer starting from medieval majestic Mosques ending up very modern local pubs.

One of the must-visited places is doubtless  Chorsu bazaar. This is a fascinating market to get an image of how famous Silk Road looked like. You can find there all-kinds of dried fruits, fresh vegetables, fragrant herbs and many other essential items. Furthermore, lots of locals go there everyday, so it is a perfect opportunity to interact with them, such a valuable experience to face the hospitality and openness of uzbek people. 

No less important place is of course, Hazrat Imam Complex. It is situated in the old residential district of Tashkent, Sibzar, that was established several centuries ago. Scientists and historians believe that it was the center of the city in the early Middle Ages, which was also known as Shash.

You will fall in love with Tashkent again again after visiting Navoi and Japanese parks. Navoi has a very beautiful nature with a small lake in the middle. Everything is wellmaintained and clean. Japanese park is peaceful place with charming trees.

Something must be said about its cuisine. Among the Central Asian countries Uzbekistan is considered to be the center of “plov”. Uzbek cuisine, definitely will not you indifferent.

Besides all things that we have mentioned here, there more and interesting places to visit in Tashkent and other historical cities. There are very modern trains going by the itinerary from Tashkent to Samarkand and Bukhara, which is very convenient. There are more and more people visiting Uzbekistan every year, that is why you will find a lot of travel agencies in Tashkent offering multi-day cultural tours and other outdoor activities. Also, nowadays it is much easier to get uzbek visa in comparison with previous years.
