Islam Karimov Memorial!

Jomboy, Samarqand Region, Uzbekistan
9 Kudos
Located near the Registan Square, visitors can check out the memorial of Islam Karimov. The humble statue of him is very significant to the history of Uzbekistan. Islam Karimov is the first president of Uzbekistan. He ruled for 25 years and he declared independence from Soviet Union in 1991. What I noticed from here is that there weren't a lot of tourists. Mostly locals roam around this area, but I still recommend coming here before going to the famous Registan Square. I definitely enjoy that local vibe when traveling and coming to the memorial square is definitely a good place to get that experience.
