Tashkent

IF SAMARKAND IS KNOWN AS “THE EDEM OF THE EAST”, BUKHARA “THE NOBLE”, TASHKENT TODAY ASPIRES TO RANK ONE OF THE BEAUTIFUL CITIES IN CENTRAL ASIA.

Tashkent the capital of a young independent state is the largest city in the region. Besides, it is political, business, scientific and cultural centre of Uzbekistan.

Tashkent is more than 2 000 years old. Its name has been changed many times during the centuries-old history: Chach, Shash, Binkent… All of these names could be transformed to Turkish word “Tash” (stone) that gave a name to the city Tashkent (means “stone settlement”). Actually city was appeared on the place having analogous name and located on the mountain crossroads playing an important role in trade between the East and the West. That time Tashkent was a citadel that has repulsed attacks of nomad tribes. But at all times, Tashkent has been and remains to be an important international transport centre.

Archaeological excavations have revealed that present-day Tashkent was the site of an ancient town which has continued to exist as a developed commercial and cultural centre of the East. Eastern and western traditions and customs have merged into a single whole. Unfortunately, many of historical monuments have been destroyed after the revolution of 1917. The unique historical monuments including Kukeldash and Barak-Khan Madrassahs erected in 16th century have been preserved to this day. In 1966, a destructive earthquake shook Tashkent and raised half of the city into ruins. In a year Tashkent actually revived and became even more beautiful.

Today Tashkent is famous as one of the world science and culture centre. The Academic Opera and Ballet Theatre is truly unique in its architecture and interior design. Theatrical Square with a splendid fountain adjoining the theatre is a favorite place of recreation for Tashkenters and guests of the capital.
