    Explore the historical city of Tashkent with Dook Travels

    During the Soviet era, Tashkent was the fourth largest city in the region. It was a scientific and engineering hub and is still home to some of the best educational centres of Uzbekistan. As a commercial hub,  new and grandiose projects are constantly being planned and developed in Tashkent. This commercial activity gives Tashkent a very cosmopolitan and modern vibe. The city authorities are also aware that the countless tourists coming to the country make Tashkent their first stop and so lately steps have been taken to make Tashkent a tourist-friendly city. A popular measure was the formation of tourist police to guide travellers which also comprised lady officers to make the city more friendly towards women travellers and families in general. In general, Tashkent has a fairly low crime rate and tourists feel safe in the city.

    It is very convenient to travel across the city as Tashkent has all possible modes of travel - bus, metro, trolleybus, tram and taxi. In fact, the metro stations of Tashkent are artistically beautiful with intricate green and blue mosaics and carved pillars and a tourist attraction in themselves.

    Tashkent is culturally rich and home to beautiful buildings whether it’s the Kukeldash Madrasah or the Barak Khan Madrasah. The Hast Imam library presently conserves one of the world's oldest Korans. Then, there is the Amir Timur Museum which is dedicated to the Mongol Warlord Amir Timur.
