Gulistan is the administrative centre of Sirdarya region, formed in 1963 on site of small village Mirzachul ľ the major core of reclamation of steppes for cotton-plants. It was gradually transformed to a town owing to industrial and cultural development.
Present-day Gulistan is well-planned, greened and built up with well-organized houses. The industry of region mainly credits with progress of cotton-growing and reprocessing of local raw materials. The main sectors of agriculture are cotton-growing, horticulture, grain farming, vegetable farming and animal breeding. Furthermore, popular mirzachul melons with unusual sweetness and tantalizing aroma are grown here.

"Once you have become the companion of the road,
it calls you again. The road lies outside the door
of your house full of charm and mystery".
