Tashkent Railway Station

Tashkent Railway StationOne of the main hubs of the capital of Uzbekistan is the Tashkent Railway Station (Northern). It was built in the 19th century, during the construction of new Russian quarter in Tashkent. First railway connected Tashkent and Krasnovodsk (today Turkmenbashy city in Turkmenistan) on May 1, 1899. The new railway, connecting Tashkent and Orenburg, was built in 1906. For the first part of the 20th century it was the only railway-connection between Russia and Central Asia.

Station between Northern and Southern Railway stationsThe building of the Tashkent Railway Station was constructed in 1899. Later it was many times repaired and reconstructed and in 1957 a new building was constructed. During the World War II this railway station met hundred thousands refugees from Eastern Europe. In 1984 the metro station “Tashkent” opened near the railway station.

Today Tashkent Northern Railway Station is the large transport hub, mainly engaged in the regional and international transportation of passengers. Trains to Samarkand, Bukhara, Khiva and other remote cities depart from this station. Suburban trains depart from the Southern Railway Station, which is located closer to the airport.
