Why visit Uzbekistan

The history of Fergana is dated back to 1876 after the downfall of Khanate of Kokand. Vast and beautiful trees beautify its streets, which were actively planted during its foundation. There are a number of famous monuments of Central Asian architecture. The main sightseeings of Fergana are the splendid landscapes on its outskirt.

Since its foundation, the founders paid a special attention to the greening of the city by building beautiful parks and alleys. Its architecture was also on the spot. The house of the governor, currently Drama theatre, the house of governor’s assistant, male gymnasium and house of the officers were built in the city. Once Fergana was named as Skobelev, but its previous name was given back after some time.
