Tashkent subway - underground museum
The Tashkent Metro is one of the most beautiful places in Tashkent. At the same time, a vehicle that can rightfully be called an underground museum. Tourists arriving in Tashkent often use the underground, especially during the sultry summer heat. The subway is cool in summer, and in winter it is always warm in the “underground museum”. The Tashkent subway is also very convenient to get to all sights. Tourists often note the cleanliness of the subway.
Even among other countries of the world, the Tashkent metro is clean and safe. Moving from station to station, you involuntarily linger and examine each of them. Each station was built according to a unique idea with a meaningful name, more like a museum than a subway.
Construction of the Tashkent metro began in 1972 and was completed in 1977. Until 2008, it was the only subway in Central Asia with 29 stations. Today, the metro has been supplemented with a number of new overground stations.
Each of the stations is a work of art, where mosaics, national patterns and Uzbek ornaments are used. Each station reflects people and events that played an important role in the history of Uzbekistan.
Tourists coming to Tashkent are strongly advised to use the Tashkent metro and pay special attention to it.
