The ancient stone city

Tashkent is the capital of Uzbekistan and undoubtedly one of the most popular cities to visit among tourists. This is not surprising as the first mention of this settlement is found in chronicles of the 2nd century BC. Since ancient times traces of various cultures, confessions and arts have remained in Tashkent: oriental bazaars, monuments of Zoroastrianism, mosques and mausoleums, Orthodox and Catholic churches, gardens and squares, museums, parks and fountains. When you visit this city you will touch the history, the identity of the culture and architecture as well as its dynamic life. 

The modern metropolis with a memorable history

As any capital Tashkent is replete with a wide variety of hotels, restaurants, nightclubs, cafes, shopping centers, stores, etc. Art can be seen even in everyday life. As you descend into each of the 29 ornate subway stations you will appreciate elaborate decor in national style, which was designed by the best artists and designers. 

The power of art is also manifested in the national cuisine. Plov, samsa, kebabs, shurpa, dalma, katlama, patyr and many more – masterpieces of traditional Uzbek food that will be appreciated by the most avid gourmets.
