Kyrgyzstan's statue of liberty was replaced by masculine Manas the warrior with a weapon on a stallion. People not only objected to a female on their main square to symbolize the nation, but also to the fact she did not look like a woman. Kyrgyz...More

This monument is replaced with Manas Statue a few years ago because the local people were not satisfied with the sculptor's design. Locals say that this statue was a horrible replica of a statue somewhere in Europe so they replaces it with the Manas Statue.

Although gone now, it was replaced with yet another idol of a nation°in searсh of identity. You can find it now a bit further east on the same street at a cinema.

The statue in the center of the city. Anyway, nothing fancy, just a landmark statue of Bishkek. Just less than 5 minutes for photo taking. Then to make the trip more worth, you should visit the historical museum nereby too
