Independence Square (Mustakillik Square), Tashkent

4.0
Explore the vast center of Tashkent's public and ceremonial life at Independence Square (Mustakillik Square), surrounded by government administrative buildings and manicured gardens with greenery. Enter Ezgulik Arch, considered to be the arch of good and noble aspirations, and observe the marble colonnade where three storks flying over a globe with Uzbekistan's borders on it. See the monument to independence, a gilt bronze globe with an image of Uzbekistan elevated on a red marble pedestal (once supporting a statue of Lenin), under which a mother nurses an infant. Three fountains set in a large pool provide a pleasant view for visitors taking a leisurely stroll around and along Ankhor River, which traverses the square.

  • the inevitable visit to the independence square where you add up the souls of the country Central Asia in fine War Memorial and at the same time the new policy that distinguishes the news. In summary it is then also a nice Park with trees just selected real treasure to cultivate for the future of uzbekistan

  • A beautiful place to see, worthy of the time of the USSR. The storks and the Ark are beautiful. To do in Tashkent.

  • Independence Square used to be Lenin Square. There are many government buildings nearby and a beautiful fountain display. Many people there, but it wasn't crowded  more »
