Ala-Too Square, Bishkek

(3.8/5 based on 50 reviews on the web)
Clean and impressive, Ala-Too Square fits in well with its monumental surroundings in central Bishkek. The focus of public life in the capital, the square features a monument to liberty and a large equestrian statue of Manas, the hero of the 17th-century epic, erected on a tall red marble pedestal against a backdrop of the State Historical Museum. With terraced pools, musical fountain shows, and benches scattered all over the square, the place makes a popular hangout place for families. The square also features a monument to the famous writer Chingiz Aitmatov. Take a stroll around and enjoy monumental buildings, or watch the changing of the guards at the base of a giant 45 m (148 ft) mast hoisting the Kyrgyzstan flag. See Ala-Too Square and all Bishkek has to offer by arranging your trip with our Bishkek vacation trip planner.
