"Capital of Uzbekistan" Top 5 Page for this destination Tashkent by nepalgoods

Tashkent Travel Guide: 265 reviews and 578 photos

Tashkent is the capital of the Republic Uzbekistan, located at the foothills of TIanshan Mountains. Already in the times of the Big Silkroad Tashkent was a center of trade and cultural exchange. In a way you can say, that Tashkent is located at the old border between an area of nomadic people and settled urban population.

It is a pity, that Tashkent always looks a bit underrated compared with the famous cities of Samarkand and Bukhara.

Next Stop on my Trip in June 2007:

Bukhara

The most beautiful city in Centralasia!

    Another excellent page from Uzbekistan. I agree with you that Tashkent is under-rated - we enjoyed our time there very much. It looks as though there is quite a lot of change in progress - it wil be interesting to go back. leyle
