    If anyone tries to look up the schedule, trains, berth availability on Express-3 Russian reservation system in 99% of cases nothing will come up for Tashkent.This is simply because a city is not the same thing as a station and the Express-3 reservation system is very picky.Instead of trying all kind of combinations in Cyrillic to satisfy the...

  • Tashkent Vokzal (Train Station)

    Very nice, modern train station. There is a hotel on the front side of the hotel (just to the left before you walk in the main entrance). Just as a word of warning, they have no showers, though it all looked clean enough (August 2008).Anyway, if you're a foreigner, you can enter through the main doors and you'll find ticket windows on either side....

    While walking through the bazzar, I bought some traditional Uzbek clothing for my father. As you can see, it just doesn't look quite right on a westerner....The long robe is called a Chipan and can be worn indoors or out. While I was there, it was unusually cold (-15C!!!) and many of the locals were wearing their Chipans outside. They can be...

Otherwise, they will not have any Soums (Cym) and you will have to resort to using store owners and taxis and they will give you a less favorable exchange rate. Also, if you travel on a tourist visa, you may need the bank receipts to account for the money that you...

    Changing money in Uzbekistan is still a hassle. While strict controls that created two markets is pretty much gone (the rates at the bank are very close to small changers), problems remain.I understand that there still are some controls and this in turn makes it difficult to get cash when changing money -- they just run out. Whatever the reason is...

Tashkent Favorites

  • by jkseddon Written Oct 3, 2004

    Favorite thing: [no, this isn't the best this about Tashkent, but there's nowhere else to put it!]

    The embassy of TURKMENISTAN is located at 1 Bol. Mirabaskaya. Apply before noon. When you return you will have to go in the morning to drop off your passport and then return between 4pm and 5pm.
    Five day transit visas are issued in 10 days and cost $31.
