You’d be surprised! I did a day trip from Tashkent and had a great time.

The road from the border to Khujand has some great views (the landscape was very different to the Uzbek side) and a few interesting Soviet Mosaics en-route.

Khujand itself was an interesting place with a beautiful setting - near the indoor market you can see arid mountains in the background, there’s interesting mosaics at Somoni Park and a Lenin Statue not to far away (I think it used to be in Somoni Park but was moved).

The cable car may even be running now too!

Cool, I'm doing the day trip from Tashkent in a couple weeks, so I'll look out for all of that.
