Uzbekistan

On the Silk Road

On the Silk Road

The life in Uzbekistan flows slowly. Time and distance are marked with a centuries-old history of raids of nomadic tribes, Persians, Turks, Mongolians, Arabs, etc. Called the Country from One Thousand and One Nights, it hides bottomless treasures in the desert sands – well-preserved cities, which have stimulated the imagination of travellers for hundreds of years. Samarkand, Khiva or Bukhara are pearls of architecture, where for over two thousand years merchant caravans headed along the Silk Road, the longest road and sea trade route in ancient times. The mosques, madrasas and palaces of Uzbekistan witnessed the blooming period and collapse of one of the most powerful empire in the world history, the Timurid Empire. A stay in Uzbekistan is a real travel in time. Not only because of the historic cities of the Silk Road. Mentally, Uzbekistan has stuck in the USRR period. The country is visited by few tourists, which additionally develops this state. However, this unusual climate and charm of Uzbekistan stays isolated. What is more, it is a safe and clean country, with excellent cuisine and hospitable and warm-hearted inhabitants.
