Photo Tour Around Tashkent

Assalomu alaykum everybody and WELCOME to Tashkent. I am Farrukh (Fara) Maratov ( Instagram, LinkedIn) and I am your photographer in Tashkent. When I studied in Latvia I traveled to 12countries but I am really sad that I didnt make great pictures while traveling except useless selfies😅. When I came back to Tashkent I understood that our guests must get great rememberence with cool photos of their travels and I decided to make it REAL. While you are in Tashkent, during one day we try to go to most popular places to visit and eat. So dont worry about food too😉 Here is the list of some places where we will visit.

1. Memorial Complex in Memory of victims of repression (Shahristan)

Memorial complex of Memory of Repression Victims was opened in 2002, located in one of the most beautiful places in Tashkent, opposite the TV Tower. The complex consists of two buildings, devoted to the victims of Stalin repression, as well as park and rotunda with a memorial stone

2. Amir Temur SQUARE

Amir Temur Square is one of the most favorite places not only for local residents but also for visitors of the capital, located in the center of Tashkent. Square was founded in 1882. Originally it was called Konstantinovsky Square, but August 31, 1994, it was renamed in honor of the great Amir Temur who created the Timurid Empire, which lasted 200 years.

3. BROADWAY

Tashkent Broadway is not only a quiet place to relax, but also a concentration of interesting entertainment. Cycling and street artists are considered the most popular. With the help of the former, you can combine an excursion and sports with the latter, order your own portrait. Broadway is a very distinctive place where every talented person can show their abilities: someone draws beautifully, someone sings and plays instruments, and someone shows magic tricks. Among them, you can often meet fans of board games, for example, chess or checkers and play a game with them.

4. Independence square

The main square of Uzbekistan is “Independence Square”. Monument “Independence and Humanism” gives the majesty and grandeur. Globe with the contour of the Republic of Uzbekistan symbolizes the recognition in the world community. There are the Cabinet, the Senate and the ministries on one side of the area, and fountains on the other one. The “eternal flame” in honor of soldiers who died during the Second World War was established on the territory of the square.
Entrance to the square opens the arch” Good and noble aspirations.” Its lightweight and elegant construction is based on 16 pillars of white marble, the length of the architectural ensemble of 150 meters. The colonnade is crowned with a bird of happiness and prosperity. Road “Ok Yul” leading to Independence Monument, is translated as “Good way”. There is also a monument Happy Mother holding her child. The architectural ensemble is a symbol of the homeland, life and wisdom, glory and honor. The monument symbolizes the hope for a great future of Uzbekistan.

5. Chorsu Bazar

Tashkent Chorsu Bazaar, which dates back more than one hundred years, has also always been located on the main square of the city of Eski-Juva. Quite a few eastern rulers on horseback or on foot walked through the trampled land of the bazaar for centuries. The old market buildings collapsed and fell into decay, but its traditional architecture remained the same – large rooms covered with domes. This was the only way to protect yourself from heat and dust in the hot and dry Asian climate.Entrance to the square opens the arch” Good and noble aspirations.” Its lightweight and elegant construction is based on 16 pillars of white marble, the length of the architectural ensemble of 150 meters.
