#27 of 76 in Things to do in Bishkek
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.

    The site and buildings are a trace of Soviet architecture found in the former USSR and the countries of the bloc of East (COMECON). The fountain in the Center gives a pleasant freshness during hot summer days. The main interest is the post Central, open 7 days a week (July 2017).

    The Soviet-era Tower in the style of the Brezhnev era, a Kyrgyz white marble. The mechanism of hours was not long ago refurbished and now operate as Watch:). Stated that around the Tower area with free Wi-Fi, but I didn't enjoy and so I can't say anything about it. As far as I know here often prescribe meeting lovers. There is a fountain that helps protect against the summer heat.
