Tashkent metro has one of the most beautiful and unusual metro stations

The Tashkent Metro system is a tourist attraction in itself and one of the most interesting things to do in Tashkent. Photography was banned in the stations until 2018 and as a result, these incredible works of art have been kept secret until recently.

A ticket on the Tashkent metro costs just 12c and as long as you don’t exit the station, you get on and off as many trains as you wish. In a couple of hours, you can see lots of the more notable stations and experience the hustle and bustle of local life.

Many of the stations have a theme. Besides the grand halls and chandelier lighting, they also have art installations representing various parts of Uzbek history. Some of the most impressive are Kosmonavtlar, which is dedicated to the cosmonauts of the Soviet Union, Pakhtakor, with mosaics representing the cotton fields, and Alisher Navoi, with its mosque-like interior.
