  • Tashkent (3)

  • Samarcanda (2)
  • Tashkent (1)

A country that was the very heart of the Silk Road thanks to its key location on the banks of the Amu Darya and Syr Darya rivers, and which boasts five UNESCO World Heritage cities.

The capital, Tashkent, is where Soviet influence is perhaps most visible. Here, the unmistakable stamp of one of the last century’s dominant styles merges with the city’s thousand-year heritage. Due to its complex history, the combination of architectural styles found here is unique.

Khiva, Bukhara and Samarkand were key cities for traders throughout their long histories. Today, they are the perfect embodiment of the splendor of Islamic architecture along the Silk Road.

Among other things, visitors will be surprised by the rich tradition of crafts, affordable prices and singular gastronomy. In Uzbekistan, magnificent landscapes and architecture await the visitor, beyond anything they may have dreamed of or seen in photos. But what really makes this destination unique is the warmth of its people. At a time when it’s hard to find anywhere outsiders are still welcomed with open arms, here we are received with curiosity, generosity, sincere respect and broad smiles.
