I recommend you to start your visit in the Tashkent Subway which is “Flight of Design Thought” – the first subway in Central Asia. It can be viewed from two sides: as a quick way to get around the city and as a large-scale architectural monument. Take time and look at all 29 stations, each of which has a unique appearance that matches its name.
What I love in Tashkent’s subway? First of all the cleanliness of the stations, architecture etc. Currently, I have a car, but I try to use the subway from time to time whenever I start missing it!
The metro or subway in Tashkent is one of the most beautiful in the world, but its uniqueness lies not only in its beauty: building a subway in a seismically active region with a hot climate was a bold idea, which ultimately led to a skillfully constructed structure.
The Cosmonauts or Astronauts station, for example, is decorated in blue-green tones that mimic the night sky, and on the walls of the station there are images of personalities somehow connected with dreams of flying to space and conquering new heights. Here, mythological Icarus, the world-famous Ulugbek and the founder of theoretical cosmonautics, Konstantin Tsiolkovsky, are all depicted in this metro station, in addition to Yuri Gagarin and Valentina Tereshkova.
If you ever happen to visit Tashkent, do not miss your chance to visit our subway.
