  University Boulevard was formed in 1970 in the XIX century, after the capture of Samarkand by Russia. It was a boundary between the old and new part of the city. There are city’s administrative and Bank centres, which represent impressive buildings of brick. Under the plane trees and venerable oaks, you can see girls and boys with books in their hands. Only experienced architects could combine European features and local traditions. Buildings of this style remind the first royal governor of Samarkand region. Now there is the city administration.

  Today, any Capital Avenue can envy the University Boulevard with a length of 128 meters. University Boulevard is not only educational and scientific center of Samarkand, but also the personification of a successful future of the country.
