Uzbekistan lies at the heart of Central Asia. It was here that the ancient Silk Road traversed linking China and the Mediterranean, that Alexander the Great conquered and that the great warlord Timur was born. Uzbekistan is a cultural melting pot with a proud artistic history and diverse culture. It’s known for its mosques, mausoleums and other sites linked to the Silk Road. Samarkand, a major city on the route, contains a landmark of Islamic architecture: the Registan, a plaza bordered by 3 ornate, mosaic-covered religious schools dating to the 15th and 17th centuries.

Each corner of Uzbekistan attracts with its features. In Tashkent, you can take a walk in the most beautiful metro in the world or see the most ancient manuscript – the Koran of Usman. In the historical cities included in the UNESCO Cultural Heritage List – Samarkand, Bukhara, Shakhrisabz and Khiva, you can visit the most ancient architectural monuments that have preserved echoes of past eras. In the southernmost part of the country – Surkhandarya, you can travel through mountain gorges or see the ruins of the ancient cities near Termez.Depending on the time of year, you can go skiing in the foothills of the Tien Shan or climb the highest point of Big Chimgan.
