Tashkent

Tashkent's metro built in 1977 as one of the most beautiful of the former Soviet Union consists of three lines. Leading architects and artists from Uzbekistan took part in creating the stations, some in Islamic designs.

Enduring materials have been used for Tashkent's station interiors, like engraved metal, glass, granite, marble, or carved alabaster. Each station's design is distinct and devoted to a certain theme.
