KyrgyzTelecom, Bishkek

2.4
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." Use our Bishkek journey maker tool to add KyrgyzTelecom and other attractions to your Bishkek vacation plans.
