INDEPENDENCE SQUARE. Independence Square (Mustakillik Maydoni) is not just the central sight of Tashkent, it is a peculiar symbol of the city. Here, folk festivities are held during national holidays, the square is a place of leisurely walks among the refreshing streams of iridescent fountains and green alleys. At the entrance of the guests welcomes the arch "Ezgulik" with 16 marble columns. The majestic, imposing dimensions of the column extend to 150 meters. The storks crown this architectural composition - birds symbolizing peace and prosperity.
COMPLEX OF MEMORY OF VICTIMS OF REPRISSION. On August 31, 2002, on the Day of Remembrance of the Victims of Repression, the memorial complex "Shahidlar Khotirasi" was solemnly opened in Tashkent, dedicated to compatriots who bravely fought for the freedom of the Motherland and undergone massive repressions in the first half of the 20th century. The museum is located in one of the most picturesque areas of the city - directly opposite the Tashkent TV tower, on the bank of the Bozsu canal.
ENSEMBLE OF KHAZRET IMAM. This is one of the most striking examples of careful attitude to architectural monuments in Uzbekistan. The ensemble of Khazret Imam was founded in the 16th century. As a result of frequent earthquakes, wars and under the influence of time, many buildings of the ensemble lost some of their decor. In 2007, after the restoration of some ancient buildings, construction of new and improvement of the territory, it appeared to the residents and guests of Tashkent in all his charm and grandeur.
MINOR MOSQUE. The Minor Mosque in Tashkent today has become a center of attraction not only for Muslim believers, but also for those who love beauty and tranquility. Walking in the area around the mosque, you can forget about daily routine and plunge into an atmosphere of peace and tranquility. It worth to note that the building of the mosque, even if it was built not so long ago, is amazing.
THE MONUMENT OF COURAGE. In the city of Tashkent located a large number of monumental structures. However, among them there is a special one erected in memory of the victims of the earthquake of 1966. The monument is called the Monument of Courage. It is located on "Mustakillik" avenue, in a place that was the epicenter of the earthquake. The memorial complex consists of two monuments. The cube on which the hands of the clock are carved are frozen at 5:24, and the date is April 26, 1966. In front of its sitauted a monument depicting a courageous father, covering his mother and child with his breast. From the cube to the monument to the family lies a huge crack, meaning a split of the earth's surface. This monument expresses the very essence of the terrible event of that time.
The people of Uzbekistan still remember and honor the memory of the victims of the earthquake of the year 66s.
MUSEUM OF APPLIED ARTS OF UZBEKISTAN. The date of the opening of this museum can be considered in 1937. It was at that time that the first exhibition of works by masters from all over Uzbekistan began. At the very beginning of its journey, the building was considered a museum of handicrafts. However, since 1997, it began to bear the status of the state and is called the Museum of Applied Arts. To date, there are over 7,000 exhibits of handicraft and applied art. These are various carpets, national jewelry, skullcaps and many other items created by craftsmen since the 19th century.
