Tashkent (Uzbekistan)

Tashkent is the capital of Uzbekistan, located in the north-east. The city's climate is very close to the Mediterranean climate, so the summers are hot (+25 C) and dry and the winters mild (-5 C), but rainy. Between December and February rains come often as snow. The city is by the old Silk Road, though the old town is mainly destroyed in the earthquake that took place in 1966 and the city has since been re-built with the Soviet style. In recent years, the city has sought to improve and the area have been fulfilled with hotels, new roads, parks and shopping malls. The only thing missing in the area are tourists. Tashkent is a reasonably safe city, although anything that could be read as insulting the local leadership should be avoided, as well as moving during the night and near large crowds, or anything referring to an incident.
