Holidays & Observances in Uzbekistan

Uzbekistan is a landlocked country in Central Asia. As a previous USSR member, Russian culture has probably had the greatest effect on the country since Islam was introduced. Freedom of religion is technically guaranteed in Uzbekistan, but Islam is the most common religion and members of other religions are often treated unfairly. Though holidays of other religions – especially Christianity – are celebrated, they are often done in private while Islamic holidays are celebrated publically and enthusiastically across the country.
