of the old and new. I visited in the summer, and the fountain going with the lights was just beautiful. I sat and watched the kids and locals play as I walked around the square. It's a great place to people watch and get a sense of the city!

Ala-Too Square is the central square of Bishkek. The square was built in 1984 to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Kyrgyz Soviet Socialist Republic, with a big statue of Lenin (now moved).

Giant square and big flagpole in the center of Bishkek. There are fountains and locals like to hang out here.

The center of the city, the site of all the best festivals and festivities, and on a warm summer night a great place to see a small slice of city life as residents young and old come out for a stroll and a skate and to promenade out in the fresh night air. A particular tourist highlight is the changing of the guard beneath the gigantic flagpole on the top of every hour, and in the afternoon the low light from the southeast makes for great photos of the guards and the large Manas statue on the pedestal just behind.

La coeur du centre-ville de Bishkek. Un bon place pour marché et observé la vie des gens de Bishkek. C'est aussi un excellent endroit pour les photos.
