Tashkent Travel Guide: 50 reviews and 258 photos

Tashkent is the fourth largest city in the former Soviet Union and after a massive earthquake in the 1960s is thouroughly Sovietized. WIth wide avenues and spread out buildings even in the centre city, the population isn't too densely packed and sights are fairly far away from one another. On the plus side, it is a relatively cosmopolitan city with interesting museums and lots of success stories from other travellers getting visas.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Great place in CA to get visas
  • Cons:troubling police on the metro
  • In a nutshell:Interesting enough to keep you occupied while you wait for visas to be processed
