Once there was a beautiful Square with cool, shaded walkways in between large, majestic "Platanus" trees (some were 100+ years old). After Uzbekistan became "independent", the local dictator cut them all down and instead planted young, tiny pine trees and random bushes of an unknown origin so that nothing would "obstruct" the view of the citizens towards the recent monument dedicated to newly-discovered "glorious superhero of Uzbekistan" (some ancient Turko-Mongol conqueror which happened to include Uzbekistan's territory into his temporary "empire" and who was responsible for the deaths of thousands of people in other countries). Imagine if Central Park in NYC would be completely cut down and all trees would be replaced by young palm trees - that's what basically happened. Nowadays there's NOTHING interesting to see there and it's not advisable to walk around it or sit on the benches during hot summer days (unless you actually want to get a heat stroke). What a terrible shame.
Relatively recent square. The trees are small and there is the clear fingerprint of Russian's communism
