Discover the flights for Tashkent of Azerbaijan Airlines from Italy

Curious to fly to discover Uzbekistan and the most interesting part of the Ancient Silk Road?

Cradle of civilization for over two millennia, Uzbekistan can boast an impressive architectural and artistic heritage, deeply permeated by the fascinating history of the Silk Road. In terms of cultural attractions, Uzbekistan is by far the richest and most extraordinary country in Central Asia.
Samarkand, Bukhara and Khiva captivate and amaze visitors with their fabulous mosques, madresses and mausoleums, but there is no shortage of more unusual attractions such as the rapidly disappearing Aral Sea, the fortresses of remote Karakalpakstan, the thriving capital Tashkent and the ecotourism initiatives launched in the Nuratau Mountains. Uzbekistan is an extremely welcoming country, where hospitality is an essential element of daily life and the locals will always make you feel welcome guests. [excerpt from the Lonely Planet]

Information about Tashkent

Sprawling Tashkent (Toshkent) is the hub of Central Asia and the place where it all happens in Uzbekistan. It is partly a newly built national capital, full of institutions of power, partly a verdant Soviet city, and partly a quiet Uzbek town, where you can meet traditionally dressed locals carrying their wares through a maze of houses to the screeching crowd of bazaar. Tashkent is a fascinating mix of contradictions worth exploring for several days.
Like most places travelers primarily use to go somewhere else, Tashkent doesn't always captivate visitors immediately, but it's a surprisingly fun and interesting place, with the best restaurants, museums, and nightlife in the country. There are also plenty of opportunities to escape the metropolis for fantastic hiking, rafting and skiing in Ugam-Chatkal National Park, just 1.5 hours away by car.

History

Tashkent has very ancient origins, the first settlements near the Circik river oasis date back to the 5-3 century BC. For a long time it was controlled by the nomadic peoples of Turkestan, until it was occupied by the Chinese. From the 5th century AD onwards it entered the Sogdian cultural orbit, subsequently it was conquered by the Arabs in 750. In 1219 the city was destroyed by Genghis Khan, only to be rebuilt a few years later. In 1809 the city was annexed to the Kokand Khanate, of which it was part until 1865, when it was annexed to the Russian Empire. In 1889 it was connected to the rest of Russia with the construction of the Trans-Caspian railway. At the fall of the Russian Empire Tashkent became part of the USSR, first as the capital of the autonomous RSS of Turkestan and, later, of the RSS of Uzbekistan, from which the Bolsheviks moved to conquer the emirate of Bukhara. During the Second World War, many industries from the cities occupied by Nazi Germany were moved to the city. On 25 April 1966 the city was hit by a violent earthquake (7.5 on the Richter scale), which left over 300,000 people homeless.
