Uzbekistan, located in Central Asia, is a doubly landlocked nation that borders five countries. Uzbekistan is known for its diverse geography with rolling sandy deserts and mountains along the border. Additionally, the country boasts a diverse economy, where the youthful population is its key resource.
Tashkent, the capital of Uzbekistan, is the largest city in Central Asia. Many Soviet-style buildings in the area around Amir Timur Square and the Navoi Theatre demonstrate the significant impact of Russian culture on Uzbekistan.
