Ala-Too Square, Bishkek

4.0
Clean and impressive, Ala-Too Square fits in well with its monumental surroundings in central Bishkek. The focus of public life in the capital, the square features a monument to liberty and a large equestrian statue of Manas, the hero of the 17th-century epic, erected on a tall red marble pedestal against a backdrop of the State Historical Museum. With terraced pools, musical fountain shows, and benches scattered all over the square, the place makes a popular hangout place for families. The square also features a monument to the famous writer Chingiz Aitmatov. Take a stroll around and enjoy monumental buildings, or watch the changing of the guards at the base of a giant 45 m (148 ft) mast hoisting the Kyrgyzstan flag.

  • One of the good place in Kyrgyzstan... Beauty of this place can be seen after sunset as this place is having great lighting... During day time also it has many water fountains to enjoy... During new year celebration, the decoration of this place is very classic as half of the city is there to welcome new year
  • We went there a few days after the new year to look at lights and decorations. This year the ambiance seems a bit better then previous years. Good vibes and atmosphere overall, the only thing that bugged me was the amount of sales people who were selling little things for children, toys, sweets, etc. It felt like there were more sales people then visitors :)
