New Tashkent

1.Among the theaters I would choose "Ilhom" one,although the building is not so attractive the cast & play are adorable.The picture was taken on Halloween.They have parties time to time when cast comes to talk & play with the auditorium at a free form& it's worth coming & seeing!Both guys are young actors in the picture.
2.A new zoo is a large area,quite interesting one with fountains & little water falls.As you can guess this bird is not a real one.But I liked old zoo more. It's almost the same as one that in Odessa,Ukraine-a small,cosy & clean spot.

new buildings & park

Intercontinental hotel wasn't built many years ago but according to "the local rumour weed" It took the first prize among Oriental ones .The park is not W.Disney one but they have a lot of amusement stuff over there,even puppet show for kids & cyclone.


Well,The building has beeen restored recently.I must admit it's so wonderful to have a Catholic Cathedral in a Moslem country.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:It's so warm & there are a lot of cheap fruits & veggies
