Uzbekistan is a landlocked country in Central Asia, bordered by Kazakhstan to the north, Kyrgyzstan to the northeast, Tajikistan to the southeast, Afghanistan to the south, and Turkmenistan to the southwest. The country has a population of around 33 million people and its capital is Tashkent.
The official language of Uzbekistan is Uzbek, which is a Turkic language. Russian is also widely spoken, particularly among the older generation. The currency is the Uzbekistani som (UZS). As of my knowledge cutoff in September 2021, the exchange rate was approximately 1 USD to 11,000 UZS.
The flight time from the UK to Uzbekistan varies depending on the airport of departure and the airline, but it usually takes around 9-10 hours with a layover.
Uzbekistan is five hours ahead of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT+5). This means that when it is 12:00 pm (noon) in the UK, it is 5:00 pm in Uzbekistan.
The main airport in Uzbekistan is the Tashkent International Airport (TAS), also known as the Islam Karimov Tashkent International Airport. Its address is Tashkent 100167, Uzbekistan. The airport is located around 12 kilometers from the center of Tashkent.
