Tashkent airport is reasonably modern and has various international carriers operating as well as the national Uzbekistan Airways.
There are road routes from surrounding countries but the borders may not be open and there have been security problems. There is a risk from land mines in some border areas.
Apart from the southern section of the inland Aral sea, Uzbekistan is land-locked. In fact, it's one of only two doubly landlocked countries in the world.
You can travel by private taxi, minibus, or normal bus. While there are official taxis, most cars will become taxis if you wave them down. Meters are rare, so negotiate the price beforehand.
Most citizens are ethnic Uzbeks, and speak Uzbek as their first language, although many also speak Russian, and certainly in the capital this is a good bet. In the capital, Tashkent, Russian is, by far, the predominant language. In some border regions Tajik or Kyrgyz are spoken.
Osh (Plov) is the national dish. It's made of rice, carrots, onions, and mutton, and yes, you will eat it if you go to Uzbekistan. Other foods include chuchvara (pelmeni), which is like ravioli stuffed with mutton and onions, manti, which are dumplings, somsas, which are pastry pockets filled with beef or greens, and soups.
