It's one of the squares with an old, but still working, Lenin museum. There's also a Lenin monument, but moved from the front square.

Ala_Too Square is one of the top attractions in Bishkek because it is surrounded by other important attractions, and you can enjoy all of their celebrations, national festivals and all entertainment from the benches and beautiful water fountains in the square.

In the government building area not far from the Panfilov Park amusement area is Ala-Too Square. It is very large, not a bad spot to get some pictures, see the giant flag and watch the world go by.

This square with a huge fluttering flag is a happening place with activities for all ages. Children love playing around and people of all ages can take various rides and spend a good time there especially in late evenings.

This is the main square with many "small" attractions. It is a must-go place, but do not expect much.

Nice square to visit, sit and walk around. You can eat and drink in the restaurants around the square. Visit the State Museum, If and when it reopens. And from this square you can walk to almost every other attraction and sight in town. Bishkek...More

Few cities in the world of the size of Bishkek with its just over 900,000 inhabitants have such a large spacious square in the center. Soviet modernism with a Kyrgyz touch is the dominant style of architecture. I like the History Museum and its square...More

I would say that’s about it, there’s a large flag, guarded by two soldiers that change occasionally and a statue it the center. It’s nice to take some pictures of the above, so spend 10 minuets for the pictures and that’s it. You will most...More

If you want to see the Soviet ghost to come to the Ala-Too square. The splendid architecture is going to impress you with it unimpressive architecture. Blocks of cement and crowds of photographers are going to surround you with love and attention.

The site is pretty spacious and surrounded by established and historic buildings. Near to an amusement park and some other important museums. A small walkaround the statue and flag will do.
