I always enjoy walking down the old streets of a city, it's there that you can feel it's soul. Old Tashkent is not an easy place to see given the architectural heritage and building style, which is mostly closed alleys, but I still enjoyed and suggest others to find out what the city is about.

The most striking thing thing is the cleanliness. Not a piece of paper or plastic on the streets.The houses are amazing from inside so try to peek through a partially open gate - the outside is just blank walls.

Old Tashkent is almost ignored now as tourists are rushed to the new, modern and beautiful city. Samarkand has been completely revitalised and is much more attractive to tourists.

We used to think that the old Muslim cities have a lot of attractions, shops and restaurants. Thus when we enter the old town in Tashkent we may be slightly disappointed. But this is how the old cities in Central Asia were looking a few hundreds years ago. It s worth to see the specific architecture - houses without windows... More

this was at the end of my leg of our journey, so i was tired and ready for home, the sites where great but i had seen so many great sights i was becoming blind to the amazing things i was witnessing, interesting question as to how long can you go before losing that wonder and enthusiasm, something worth remembering...

I wouldn't go out of my way to go and look at old Taskent but I would recommend staying there -- at the end of an alley behind a wall with a courtyard you do get the feeling of what it was. Like the Gulnara guesthouse or the Jahongir . Otherwise, from the street all you you see is walls... More

The old town starts at the Chorsu Bazaar and Metro Station. The bazaar itself is worth seeing and the neighborhood around is interesting.

Old Tashkent is a charming venue to observe the daily lives of its residents up close,especially around the central bazaar Chorsu. Many old, significant, and symbolic buildings have also been restored.

This open air market is pretty interesting in that you can see all the different food sellers side-by-side. Fruits are separate from vegetables, nuts and spices are upstairs and are very different from those at home, which would be imported from here. Meats are sold with little left to the imagination as you can see animal carcasses. Aside from the... More
