Taraz

Trip Planner Asia  /  Kazakhstan  /  Jambyl Province  /  Taraz
One of the oldest cities in the country, Taraz has changed hands many times since it became one of the wealthiest stops on the old Silk Road trade route. A leading regional light during the medieval period, Taraz suffered complete destruction from invading Mongols during the 13th century. Modern-day Taraz displays a typically Soviet look, with monumental architecture and wide boulevards made for parades. Recent archaeological efforts have led to the restoration of several buildings, including mausoleums and mosques, that have become key places to visit in Taraz once more. Take a peek at our custom trip planner: Taraz and its charms laid bare and easily scheduled.

Where to stay in Taraz

When visiting Taraz, you'll find a small number of accommodations, largely located in the western side of the city, on or close to the plazas and boulevards with the most services, restaurants, and attractions. On either side of the main thoroughfare you'll find some pretty upmarket choices, placed around monumental squares and along the leafy boulevards, offering plush rooms and additional facilities. Simpler options lie in the side streets around the university, and include guesthouses and hostels.
