Today we launched a city guide for the capital of Uzbekistan: Tashkent. We are super excited to have launched one of the first city guides ever (and definitely the only one with up-to-date tips by locals) to this amazing Central Asian capital that too few people visit.
Our Spotters Farkhod, Malika and Umida have done a wonderful job writing about their favorite spots in the city they call home and love. Soon our newest Spotter Abduvokhid’s articles will be published too.
A few of the Tashkent spots our locals have shared:
- Rayhon Milliy Taomlar – Where locals get their cheap noodles
- The Coral Art Salon – For unique modern replicas of antique Uzbek jewelry
- Nurafshon Osh Markazi – The best Uzbek pilov (pilaf) in the city?
- Farhod Farmers market – A local market where you probably won’t find any tourists
- The Black Quail – “Born in Uzbekistan” quality leather clothing
- Victims of Repression Museum – an important museum that shows the how many Uzbeks suffered under the Stalinist repression
For all articles, check out Spotted by Locals Tashkent and start planning your trip! We will do this too, as our planned trip to meet our locals in Tashkent in May was unfortunately canceled. We can’t wait to visit!
We hope to expand to other Central Asian capitals soon. Do you live in Nur-Sultan (Kazakhstan), Bishkek (Kyrgyzstan), Dushanbe (Tajikistan), Ashgabat (Turkmenistan) or know people there? Please apply here or spread the word :)
