Clean and impressive, Ala-Too Square fits in well with its monumental surroundings in central Bishkek. The focus of public life in the capital, the square features a monument to liberty and a large equestrian statue of Manas, the hero of the 17th-century epic, erected on a tall red marble pedestal against a backdrop of the State Historical Museum. With terraced pools, musical fountain shows, and benches scattered all over the square, the place makes a popular hangout place for families. The square also features a monument to the famous writer Chingiz Aitmatov. Take a stroll around and enjoy monumental buildings, or watch the changing of the guards at the base of a giant 45 m (148 ft) mast hoisting the Kyrgyzstan flag.

Ala-Too Square is a large square in the center of Bishkek. There are a couple of guards standing next to the statue. Make sure you visit the square while you are sightseeing in Bishkek. more »
首都ビシュケクの中心地というべき広場がアラトー広場。広場では大きな噴水が地面が出ており、夏になると多くの子供が遊んでいる。キルギスの国旗がはためき観光の名所の一つ more »The square that should be called the center of the capital Bishkek is Alato Square. There is a large fountain on the ground in the square, and many children are playing in summer. The flag of Kyrgyzstan is one of the tourist attractions
Ala too square is located in the middle of the Bishkek with fantastic views to capture for photography lovers Try to visit before 4pm as they don’t have a good lighting for all try buildings and will be a hard task to walk around as it will be super cool with breeze Roads and floor will be slippery so take care with your foots and always try to use boots 🥾 which will be the safest Get some good landscapes with snow ❄️
Superpretty place. The changing of the guards is nice to watch. It is also a nice place to take pictures because of the pretty buildings, trees and mountains in the background. The square is clean and well maintained. Very nice shops around the square. The park near is also very nice and well kept. The ferriswheel is a must! You get a nice vieuw of the square from there.
