Pack your swimsuits, towels and either drinking water or a reusable water bottle.
The water in Tashkent is safe to drink, although as with anywhere, drink at your own risk. It's possible to bring a water bottle and fill up as you go.
Tuesdays and Thursdays are half-price for women at the pool, so pick one of these days if you can.
July and August can be hot, which is great for swimming, but makes it difficult to spent too much time outside.
Tashkent, Uzbekistan has so much to offer, from it’s Silk Road history to modern day, Central Asian life. This mini-adventure in Tashkent with kids lets you discover a bit of both and includes some pool and/or play time. Start off by visiting the Hazrati-Imam Complex, it is was built this century and has been designed to emulate the original Silk Road mosques and madrassas. If you’re lucky, there may be a few artisans working near the souvenir shops on crafts that have persisted for centuries. No trip to Tashkent would be complete without wandering through Chorsu Bazaar. The first stop offered some history of the Silk Road for kids and adults. Next, get a view of modern day, Uzbek life at the bazaar. There’s a bit of everything for sale, but the dried fruit and nuts inside the central circular building are the highlight of the visit. Wandering in the heat can be tiring, especially for your little nugget! The Furqat nomli bog’i (Furqat Recreation Park) has a large, lovely outdoor pool which is a fantastic place to cool off. If swimming isn’t for you, there are a number of amusement park rides and a bouncy castle. These are all in the shade and will give the kid’s something to look forward to after a day of adventuring.
