During the day, this central square is a pleasant park. At night, there’s music from the restaurant and you can sit by the pool and have a drink and listen for free.

The Heart of the old City with an iconic pond decorated with some interesting statues and plenty of shops and cafe around. A fine place to take a break and sip coffee to admire the typical Central Asia view.

This plaza is really a great place to sit, relax, have a coffee, enjoy the sights, people watch, shop, eat, or whatever you like. The centrepiece of the square is the small lake in the middle, with a handful of paddling ducks and miniature versions...More

This pleasant plaza, with trees and fountains, is lit up at night, and you can enjoy a stroll, or a drink, and relax as Bukhara residents do here.
