Tashkent Metro, Tashkent, Uzbekistan

map for Tashkent Metro, Tashkent, Uzbekistan
Tashkent metro is definitely one of authentic attractions of the city. Though not as long and massive as the underground in other cities, for example, Moscow, yet the Tashkent subway has peculiar features that distinguish it from any other metro in the world. The stations were built after the devastating earthquake in 1966, when the city was virtually wiped out. At that time, Tashkent was different in appearance, a more oriental-looking city with private houses surrounded by clay walls, narrow streets and lack of general town planning. After the tremble, it was decided to renovate Tashlent, give it a more European like appearance and functionality. Metro was a must, and the first station was put in operation in 1977, with all the solemnity and classic Soviet design: marble, columns and grandeur.
