This square left us nothing impressive given its park like location has a bloc like buildings, unassuming traditional buildings and giant but unpleasant statues. Plus many soldiers guarding the places make it uncomfortable to walk.

Independence Square is a huge complex of gardens and statues/memorials. On a nice clear day it is a lovely place for a walk and relaxation with wonderful sights to see. Language is a barrier. It is recommended to take a guide or someone who can explain and interpret. Full points to the maintenance staff that keeps this location so green,... More

Mustakillik or Independence Square was formally known as Lenin square. It is huge and I mean really huge, it is beautifully kept and maintained and sports many stunning fountains. A must see in the now modern part of Tashkent, especially if the weather is nice.
