Tashkent, the capital of Uzbekistan, was once the richest city in Central Asia, serving as a trading hub for the region and the Soviet Union. Today, the city is a hotchpotch of traditional Uzbek architecture and modern masterpieces. The palatial subway stations are another highlight well worth checking out, as the underground rail system was one of the first to be built in Central Asia. If you’re looking for a well-located and comfortable base from which to experience this fascinating and ancient metropolis, here are the best hotels – all bookable on Culture Trip.
