Angren (Uzbek: Angren / Ангрен; Russian: Ангрен) is a city in eastern Uzbekistan 70 mi (110 km) east of Tashkent. It was founded in 1946 as a center for the Uzbek SSR's coal industry. It is located on the Angren River.
Prior to the collapse of the Soviet Union, the city had a significant Russian population. The population of the city has declined since the early 1990s because of very poor living conditions, unemployment and mass immigration. In 1992 it had a population of 133,000 but as of 2005 it was 126,962.
