  • Came to friends from Tashkent, naturally led us to walk on the independence square. Surprised long fountain. Huge pool with water. Probably in the heat here go for a lot of people, so how Water creates more coolness. In General, Tashkent for me why it reminds of Kavminvod resorts. A lot of Greens. A lot of water. Quietly. Pure. Despite the fact that we were right in the middle of the square there were not so many people. And those who were did not create a lot of noise, to which I was accustomed in your hometown. Park still quite young but still pleasant to the eye. This is just to walk along the paths and see with your own eyes. Smell the scent of pines, catch look fanciful for curved trunks Mulberry trimmed hedge. They were machines where the trees and their movement was almost audible. Struck a large number of law enforcement officers on the streets. Everywhere. They are not striking, but constantly present.

  • The main square of Uzbekistan located in front of the entrance to the Parliament square decorated Arch of good and noble aspirations, which represents a composition rushing up posts. very beautiful and majestic Park planted with coniferous trees and very well-maintained. Central alley leads to the monument of independence and blessed mother. There are security guards everywhere.

  • Very nice for a stroll, especially over to the eternal flame and the weeping mother. Trees were beautiful in fall.
