Mustaqillik Maydoni in Tashkent, capital of Uzbekistan

Tashkent (meaning Stone City) is the capital and largest city of Uzbekistan. The buildings on the postcard houses the Ministry of Finance,  located on Independence Square.
After the proclamation of Uzbekistan's independence in September 1991, "Lenin Square" was renamed in 1992 as "Mustaqillik Maydoni", which translates to "Independence Square".

The stamp on the right is part of a set of stamps about space, issued in 1997.
