What are the pros and cons of living in Tashkent?

Expats, digital nomads and retirees living in Tashkent responded:

"Expats and digital nomads living in Tashkent, often appreciate the city's rich history and unique architecture, which includes a mix of ancient Islamic buildings and Soviet-era structures. They also enjoy the vibrant local culture, friendly and hospitable people, and the delicious Uzbek cuisine, which features dishes like plov, shashlik, and samsa. The cost of living in Tashkent is relatively low, making it an attractive destination for those looking to stretch their budget. The city also offers a range of modern amenities, including shopping malls, restaurants, and cafes, as well as a developing public transportation system. However, there are also some challenges that expats and digital nomads may face while living in Tashkent. One of the main issues is the language barrier, as English is not widely spoken, and most locals speak Uzbek or Russian. This can make it difficult to navigate daily life, communicate with locals, and access services. Another concern is the limited availability of high-speed internet, which can be a significant drawback for digital nomads who rely on a stable connection for work. Additionally, the bureaucracy and paperwork involved in obtaining visas and residence permits can be time-consuming and frustrating. The climate in Tashkent can also be challenging, with hot summers and cold winters, which may not be suitable for everyone. Finally, some expats and digital nomads may find the conservative nature of Uzbek society and the strict government regulations to be restrictive, particularly when it comes to personal freedoms and social activities," explained one expat living in Tashkent.
