When you visit Tashkent all around the city you are going to see modern Soviet style buildings. Until you reach the old part of Tashkent you do not feel like you are in an old Oriental City which was one of the main stops for traders of the Silk Road. At this moment you have to know the fact that the whole city had been completely destroyed by the Earthquake of Tashkent in 1966.

Just in a few seconds, over 78,000 children or some 300,000 people have lost their homes. Total 236 Buildings, over 700 trade complexes, 181 educational institutions, 185 medical and 245 industrial establishments turned into dust. All Soviet Republics sent works, construction materials for reconstructing the city and for building accommodation for over 300,000 people. Among all countries Russia, Ukraine, Belorussia, Kazakhstan and Azerbaijan participated in the constructions more than the others.

Within 4 years Tashkent already had schools for over 18,200 children and accommodation of over 4million km2.
