Independence Square (Mustakillik Square), Tashkent

(300+ reviews on the web)
Landmark
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. See Independence Square (Mustakillik Square) and all Tashkent has to offer by arranging your trip with our Tashkent itinerary planner.

  • A ride on the METRO is worthwhile in any case, there are seeing much, be amazed! There are many inviting shaded places, a myriad of fountains. Tashkent is called the city of the thousand fountains!
