bukhara uzbekistan

National Puppet Theatre Bukhara

Favorite thing: You can enjoy a cheerful presentation of Uzbek folk stories, the tradictional Bukharan wedding cerimony and many anedocts of Hoja Nasruddin. There are 2 plays per day one at 7pm and other at 8pm. You should buy your ticket in advance cos sometimes they dont have people to start the theatre so they cancel the show. if you buy the ticket they will have to make the play for you.

Favorite thing: Tashkent is the most cosmopolite city in all Central Asia. It has all big cities usually have. The urbazation of the city will remind you of soviet presence.

Kazakhstan-Uzbekistan border - Uzbekistan

Kazakhstan-Uzbekistan border

Kazakhstan-Uzbekistan border

Favorite thing: The huge gate you can see further on the picture is the Entrance Gate to Uzbekistan coming from Kazakhstan.

This will give you a very impressive first look of the country and marks the evident position of Uzbek people of being very proud of their country.

Fondest memory: I was very impressed by the land border with Kzakhstan and Uzbekistan. A huge gate was wainting me to enter... Police on the Uzbek side was far more polite and nice than in Kazakhstan.
