 The former mining town in the region of Tashkent
In the mid-twentieth century, when it was finished the Second World War and the Cold War began, on a spur ridge Chatkalsky started uranium mining, which has become one of the most important resources in a future arms race. Gradually grew a small indoor city, the access to which was strictly limited. Thus, in the early 50s there was Yangiabad.
Here lived and worked in the mining industry professionals - one of the best in the entire USSR. In mines in hazardous areas with high radiation background of the prison. The city had its own rules, it was only at the Moscow authorities. But for 30 years, most of the uranium mines were exhausted, and the city began to decline. Exodus began, and today there was only one fifth of the population, especially in retirement.
Today it is half empty city that lost about 120 km from Tashkent. There is no historical attractions, but the city itself be called a tourist attraction. The architecture of the city is built in the style of a German non-traditional Uzbek two-and three-storey houses. Presumably, the city lived by the Germans in the Soviet Union before the Second World War (German prisoners of war would not allow for strategic design) was built. Today, most of these houses are empty, and the city comes alive only in summer, when here came from Tashkent to rest from the hustle and bustle of the capital. Many of the homes sold as summer residences.
