    Tashkent's main attraction
    In comparison to places like Samarkand, Bukhara and Khiva the capital of Uzbekistan, Tashkent, is rather disappointing. What I liked best about this large, modern city was its metro, which goes back to 1977, thus Soviet times with inspirations from the Moscow metro. Since then it has been enlarged several times. Open from 5am till midnight it is easy to use and I could even pay my ticket with credit card. It is worth to spend some time down here and get off at the most attractive stations, which all have a different theme. Many of Uzbekistan's best architects and artists have worked on them. After independence in 1991 many station names have been changed, thus 'Lenin' became 'Independence Square' (Mustaqillik Maydoni). Among the stations one should not miss are Alisher Navoi, referring to a 15th century poet, who wrote in the now extinct Turkic language Chagatai. On the station walls are reliefs with themes referring to his work. Gafur Gulam station is named after another poet, this time a 20th century man from Tashkent. Kosmonavtlar is the station of the cosmonauts with medaillons of famous people like Yuri Gagarin or Valentina Tereshkova, the first woman in space. In the stations different materials have been used, some have columns, other pillars and often one sees chandeliers. The decorations are mostly on the walls behind the tracks. Other stations one should not miss are Tinchlik, Pahtakor (Cotton Picker), Toshkent and Mustakilliq Maydoni.

    OMG - this is a MUST DO in Tashkent
    These stations are amazing. I was told that I should see a few of them, and I sort of dissed it, but then I went to one. I rode the trains to each station and got off; I think I did about 15 stations. Many of them were amazing. What's sad is that the ones that were not amazing were very clean and nice looking. It is very affordable and well worth some time to visit.

    The platforms of Metro Tashkent are absolute beauty
    Wow....what a beauty! The platforms of Metro Tashkent are absolute beauty. I have visited almost every platforms (26 platforms). I made it through 4 visits only. If you have time you can make it in one visit only as after buying 1 ticket at 1,400 UZS only, you can visit all the platforms, provided that you will not exit any station unless you are done. There is no time baring for the ticket.

    Tashkent Metro an underground experience!!
    I just spent four hours going to about 28 stations I. The Tashkent Metro taking photos. It was 38° up top but nice and cool in the Metro. What a great experience, each station is different with marble and glass and chandeliers. Some stations are unbelievable And clean and clean and clean.

    Practical and beautiful
    The metro in convenient and easy enough to use. The simplest is to buy a ticket at the cash desk which is for single entry. Then figure out where you want to go. The signs at the stations are in Latin script so worth figuring out where you’re going and how many stops you need to make. While on the trains the script is in Cyrillic so a little trickier to figure out. Of course many of the stations are impressive and worth seeing just for that reason. Plenty of ‘no photos’ signs around.

    Definitely worth a visit
    The metro in Tashkent is ridiculously good value for money, I think 1400 Som a ticket (around 10p). Each ticket allows unlimited travel until you leave a station so you could visit every station, which would probably take a few hours, for 10p. Each station was decorated with its own theme and colour scheme. We saw a few but the cosmonaut one was by far the best. All the stations were spotlessly clean and well organised despite the trains themselves being crowded.

    A great contribution to the city of Tashkent from its Russian occupied days.
    A great experience and must do if you’re in Tashkent. The metro stations are ornately decorated, some even have chandeliers. The facility is highly functional and allows you to access most places. And the cost is negligible. A very useful and robust piece is infrastructure from the Russian days.

The tickets are affordable (2000 som) to go anywhere in the city via metro. You can pay via cash or get a transport card at the ticket window. The stations can be beautiful, especially the Alisher Navoi, Pakhtakor, and Kosmonovtlar. Line 1 (the red line) is often crowded and it may take more than one train to get a spot. The other lines are less crowded.

You must try and use the metro while in Tashkent. They are easily located from street level with a big letter ‘M’
As you enter the metro station you will see a ticket booth. It tends to be a free for all and can get quite busy. The cost is 1400 som for a ticket, irrespective of where you are going. It really is cheap and such amazing value.
Your ticket shows the station where you boarded.
It can be quite difficult deciphering your destination. There are information screens indicating the various destinations of the two trains but it is displayed in Latin and Cyrillic.
The metro stations are all unique and are immaculately clean. They are monitored by soldiers and before you can proceed into the station you have to scan your ticket and have your bag checked with a metal detector by the soldiers.
I wasn’t sure about taking photographs inside the stations and whether it was really allowed.
The trains are very busy as they are a popular way of getting about the city.
The names of the approaching metro stations are announced, to give you an idea of where you are.

The metro system is excellent and cheap. It will cost you about 14 cents all day.
The stations are beautifully decorated and the trains are clean.

A practical way of getting round the city but also worth stopping at some of the more ornate stations to enjoy their unique decor as each one represents a particular aspect of Uzbek life. Don't miss Alisher Navoi, dedicated to the prolific writer and Kosmonavtlar, which celebrates Uzbekistan's involvement in the space race.
