The biggest square in Toshkent is he independence square. With the change of Politics it changed it face and its significance over the decades and serves as a good example for the east in general. First it was the Cathedral Square fort he Orthodox Church, as the Russian Empire conquered the region.
The biggest attraction on the Independence Square of Toshkent is in my view the eternal flame at just opposite to the Turkistan-palace at the right corner of the square. I don't really know about the west, but eternal flames had been a big hit and a necessity in most of the Eastern-European capitals.
