Tashkent International Airport - Tashkent

Tashkent International Airport

Tashkent International & National Airport

Tashkent’s airport is located south of town, approx. 4 km off the city centre (Timur park). It is divided into national (east) and international (west) parts. Both don’t have very much of shopping or restaurant option (or I was too blind to find them), so be prepared.
The shopping possibilities are not much more than small kiosks, but you get water, soft drinks, cigarettes and some overpriced souvenirs. I did not see a duty free shop, although the map lists one.
Restaurants are mor of snack bars with sandwiches and sweets and the hard stuff of course (vodka, lol).

Usbekistan Airways has several international, national and CIS flights – all info see weblinks below:

Tashkent's metro signals - Tashkent

Tashkent's metro signals

Central Asia’s only metro – don’t miss it !

Tashkent has the only metro in Central Asia. And it is not only an efficient way to get around in town, but does also beautiful artwork in each station.
You have the choice between 3 lines: Chilonzor (red line, southwest to northeast), Uzbekistan (blue line, northwest to southeast), Yunusobod (green line; north-south), which do bring you to almost every point of interest. Most of the stations are huge, mainly the ones at the crossings. Note that the crossings’ stations do have different names, depending on the line. But the color code makes it easy to identify where to get off or where to go next. Names are all in Uzbek (not in Russian). Best you print out a map of the lines (see weblink below). I tried to get a map at the stations, but wasn’t successful. I don’t think it was because of my hardly existing command of Uzbek or Russian – they just don’t have that many plans to hand out.
Connections are quick, cars are very clean and trains run each 10 minutes in all directions.

One serious warning though: it is very much attempting to take pictures, but it is forbidden ! Policemen are everywhere, and you might face serious discussions and a fine if they catch you while photographing.

Prices per ticket are 160 som (no matter how far you travel and how often you change trains, as long as you stay below surface).
