Lonely Planet review for 7-Kilometres Bazaar
The sprawling 7-Kilometres Bazaar on the city's southwest edge is probably the largest market of any kind in the former Soviet Union. Nicknamed the tolkuchka or tolchok (both meaning 'push' in Russian), its appeal lies in its sheer size, rather than in its shopping selection, which mainly entails row after row of the same old cheap knock-offs and junk. The official name has to do with its location about 7km outside the city.
