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.

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.

  • Go in the evening ! The fountains are all lit up at night and of course it’s cooler . (Still a nice place to stroll during the day)  more »
  • This place was really well designed. We really enjoyed walking around during the day, and it was equally beautiful at night.  more »
