This vibrant metropolis is alive and kicking. Modern and historic buildings alternate and the Soviet legacy is never far away. The contrasts fascinate, the old city centre pleasantly surprises and in the evening the lit up monuments create a fairy tale atmosphere. This is where you will find the best restaurants in the country.
Even beyond the city limits there is a lot to be discovered and done. Go hiking, rafting or skiing, for instance. All these exciting activities can be found as little a 2-hour drive from the city of Tashkent.
Visit the lively Chorzu bazaar, taste its delicious treats and do not forget to try the local specialty 'Pilov'. The ideal spot to go souvenir hunting is Alayski market. Keep your eyes peeled at the Amir Temur Square while you munch some dried fruits. The spirit of the medieval ruler is said to be wandering around here still. Finally, the Museum of Applied Arts is worth a visit. Here you will discover the architectural and cultural splendour Uzbekistan has to offer in a nutshell.
