    The central square of Bishkek serves as a place for state events and celebrations and includes many monuments. Of note is the statute of Manas regarded as a national hero. Next to Manas is the official flagpole of the Kyrgyz Republic. Be sure to be there to watch the changing of the guards (which occurs hourly).

    Important City Square in Bishkek
    I visited Ala-Too Square on my recent trip of Kyrgyzstan. It is a famous square in the heart of Bishkek. It includes the statue of Manas, the large national flag, the History Museum, and a very nice fountain area. This is definitely an area one should visit if visiting Bishkek.

The main square in this fascinating former Soviet republic's capital that is full of squares, parks and open spaces. Overlooked by pre 1991 architecture maintained to modern standards Ala Too is a must visit for any tourist.

The changing of the guard had all of the grandeur one would expect in such a fabulous place.

In 'The Land of Forty Tribes,' Kyrgyzstan's capital square delivered.

Full marks.

Very nice square especially in summer. With the dry heat of Bishkek, the fountains are a great refreshment. Definitely try the kvass drink sold by the ladies with big buckets. Very delicious.

Spacious and all encompassing historical square that can impress any casual visitor. I went round this square many a times during my three days stay visiting museums, parks, historical monuments and a variety of eateries. Best place to spend time and energise oneself. The Kyrgyz national flag in the square in front of the museum and by the side of the tall statue of freedom is a major attraction.
