The center of Tashkent – such a busy place. A lot of cars day and night, shops, people, buildings, crowded places. However, I wouldn’t describe this alley in the center the same way. TSUM Alley is such a quiet place – clean, and full of trees. People enjoy the atmosphere of the trees, the green grass, the birds and books you can find there. Yeah, exactly books! There are so many open-air book shops and there even are old sellers presenting their old collection of books on the ground. Some of their books are a hundred years old. I call them ancient books.
Walking down the alley gives me such a feeling of gratefulness. I feel grateful for being able to see the beauty, for breathing this fresh air, and for listening to nature. Besides, observing, touching books, and reading through different books’ titles gives me such a desire to buy and read those books as soon as possible.
It is a great place for families who want their children to go out and walk without fear. First of all, there are no cars. Secondly, there are pigeons which children love to feed and run after them. Thirdly, it is cool because of the trees, and the wet green grass provides the best temperature. In addition, there are plenty of benches just to have some rest and enjoy the view.
I go there regularly. I have bought most of my books from there. I suggest the same to you.
