  • Broadway

    by Rumiya Written Nov 25, 2004

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Tashkent has its very own and it's bustling with people, day and night, Broadway, just as in New York.
    Shashlik, popcorn and ice-cream vendors line this pedestrian area, bordering the Zerafshan entertainment complex, trinkets are sold from street stalls, paintings and souvenirs towards the Amir Temur Square and the sound of karaoke prevails.
    There you can have your portrait painted, you can get almost whatever you want, and even listen to fortune-tellers!
    A lot of night clubs are situated in this area as well.

    Is a favourite among recreational parks either for young or old. The best place for time spending at the height of the summer. Is situated just behind the Inter-Continental Hotel and the Japanese Garden.

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The delightful Museum of Applied Arts should not be missed. Formerly the residence of Alexander Polovtsev, the Tzar's envoy, who incorporated the finest works of the greatest masters, it today displays samples of traditional Arts & Crafts, both antique and contemporary. The Museum shop makes available high quality handmade embroidery and carpets.

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Recently renovated and Uzbekistan's major museum, displaying on three floors archaeological finds, documents, textiles and much more from pre-history to the beginning of the century. A good introduction to the country or a summary before you fly out again.

    Amir Temur Museum

    There are a lot of interesting museums in Tashkent. One of them is Museum of the history of the Temurids. It was opened in honor of the 660-th anniversary of Amir Temur's birthday in 1996. This is one of the most interesting museums in Central Asia, where you can find out more information about Temurid dynasty.

  • Chorsu bazaar

    by Rumiya Written May 14, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is verily oriental bazaar in Tashkent. Really worth of seeing of course if you are not afraid of a big crowd. There are very many people there everyday and much more on Wednesday when new goods are delivered and on Sunday when people have rest and go there for shopping. There you can see both food and store market. Variety of fruits and vegetables that makes Uzbekistan famous attracts everybody and you really feel that you are dazzled. And what is most interesting - is the habit of bargain that all salesmen and customers do with pleasure. So I really want to notice that this place you are to visit being in Tashkent.

    Ride a camel at the circus

    by heplion Written Feb 25, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The circus was a fun way to spend an evening in Tashkent. While not as good as the Moscow circus or Barnum and Bailey, it was a good show. The seats are cheap however very uncomfortable. We got to ride a camel during intermission for about 50 cents! While I was trying to get off the camel moved and I got stuck in a vertical split trying to find a step for my foot! My legs haven't seen that position since I was a young gymnast!!!

    The Amir Temur Museum

    by heplion Written Feb 25, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The design of this building is based on the crown of Amir Temur, a ruler and conqueror of much of Central Asia who lived and ruled in Samarkand, Uzbekistan. The museum doesn't have to much to offer inside. The main hall is rather attractive, but the exhibits are lacking.

    Take a walk around the zoo

    by heplion Written Feb 25, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Well, there really aren't to many "must see's" in Tashkent. The city was destroyed by an earthquake some years back and what is left is pretty much all typical Soviet. But one of the few things that was fun to see was the zoo. I am not usually much of a zoo person, I don't like the way the animals are usually kept. This zoo was not realy an exception, however the animals were very active and playing around alot with eachother.
