KyrgyzTelecom, Bishkek
(2.4/5 based on 35+ reviews on the web)
Enjoy retro architecture once so popular in continental Europe at KyrgyzTelecom, a modernist clock tower in central Bishkek forming part of the marble-plated Kyrgyz Telecom building. A present from Armenia as a sign of cooperation between the two Soviet socialist republics, the 40 m (131 ft) tall clock tower was donated in 1984. Part of a large paved plaza also housing the city’s general post office, the tower features an electromechanical mechanism reproducing the chimes of the Moscow Kremlin’s clock. Locals refer to it affectionately as "The Big Ben of Bishkek." Add KyrgyzTelecom and other attractions to your Bishkek trip itinerary using our Bishkek trip builder.

  • In Bishkek buildings mostly built during the Soviet period, and the Formation of the same series. This is one of the few places where you can buy souvenirs in Bishkek, you will find them in underground passages next to this tower.
