An amazing place of An amazing person
Oct 2021 • Solo
I feel in love with this place. The best art-gallery I have ever seen. Very authentic and beautiful place where you can feel the atmosphere of USSR (Soviet Union) and efinitely the best coffee in Samarkand City.

So many birds inside. All of them are amazing. And truly with all this vintage style and authentic atmosphere, the best coffee and conversations you just want to forget all your problems and feel yourself like a "Happy Bird"

I will definitely come back here again and again. If you're good person with a big heart, please go, and check it out. You'll definitely enjoy to be there. Become a "Happy Bird" at least for half an hour...

A beautiful gallery in a lovely setting
Oct 2021
This is a beautiful art gallery in a wonderful courtyard. The owner is a lovely lady with lots of life experience, personal stories and a warm heart. A young designer works with her. Their gallery is a must visit when in Samarkand. I will definetly be back!

Lovele place to visit in Samarkand
Sep 2021 • Couples
Lovely and very interesting gallery to visit in a beautiful city of Samarkand. Went there to take a look and I ended up buying a unique hand made jacket for my wife.
The owner, Elena is a wonderful lady which offered us tea and coffee while we were checking the place. Thank you, Elena, for your hospitality and amazing place that you have created in an ancient city!

Valentin & Yulia!

A charm you can't resist
Jun 2021
This gallery completely envelops you with its special atmosphere and Elena's warm welcome. Each individual item is well chosen to introduce you to a bygone era. The wardrobe on offer is unique, very high quality, modern and elegant, with the touch of Samarqand's spirit.

Artful & Unique Boutique
Jun 2021 • Solo
This boutique is artful and unique. Custom-made clothing is made from a variety of specially-sourced fabrics and are unique pieces of art. The owner is a passionate lover of textiles and an art historian who was previously a museum curator. She was extremely welcoming and treated me to coffee while sharing her stories and interests. Her English is fair but she compensates with enthusiasm.

Unique, beautiful and rare quality!
Apr 2021
I visited Happy Bird in April 2021. It is a great art gallery/shop. I went around many souvenir shops in Samarkand, but there was nothing comparable in quality. All the pieces are unique and beautifully crafted. I got myself a cardigan of an excellent quality and colours, and you can tell every stitch was made with love and care and soul. It was definitely worth a visit. Highly recommend it!

Happy Bird - try to visit if you're in Samarkand
May 2021
Happy Bird was an absolute happy finding for us. Such a unique atmosphere and an amazing host Elena, offering us very good coffee (that is hard to find in Uzbekistan I must say) with no charge and the most interesting conversation.

Apart from that, the collection of clothes in the shop is something outstanding. That is true art. Every piece is unique and so much stands out from everything you can find in other local shops. I totally recommend visiting this place.

Sustainable Fashion didn't come to Samarkand it was born here!
Mar 2021
Have you ever heard of Sustainable Fashion and Wearable Art, that is exactly the combination one would get when entering Happy Bird gallery!

Not only that you are being spoilt with a great coffee brewed exactly for you, but you also would have a chance to dive into the conversation about local craft with an Art Specialist, called Elena, that dedicated her life to popularising and sharing the beauty of craftsmanship and years of research on local patterns and techniques.

A few hours passed by surrounded by beauty and real gems you would have no access anywhere in Uzbekistan, that is for sure!

Hearing about 1000 times would not substitute the experience you would have when visiting the gallery where art meets skills, West meets East and traditions meet modern! A place worth visiting!

Thank you, Elena, for your time and hospitality!
