About Uzbekistan

Why Uzbekistan? If you want to see the unique combination of the East, you must visit Uzbekistan!

The age of some cities in Uzbekistan is more than 2500 years. And this is not exotic specially created for tourists – this is the real life of real people. At the same time, you do not have to sacrifice your comfort: in this country there are comfortable hotels and hospitality. Uzbekistan is a paradise for history lovers. If Tamerlane is not a hero of an epic for you and you know where the Great Silk Road ran, then Uzbekistan is a perfect destination for you. Slim minarets, mausoleums and madrasas which have witnessed many important events and saw people who came to these lands such as Genghis Khan and Alexander the Great. The cities of Samarkand and Bukhara are UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Even if only one single city had survived in Uzbekistan since ancient times, hundreds of tourists from all over the world would still come here. To see the architectural jewels, to admire blue mosaics and majolica with an infinite variety of ornaments which cannot leave a single person indifferent. Having visited Samarkand, you will understand why it was called the “Pearl of Central Asia” and “Rome of the East”. In Bukhara buildings are not distinguished by bright colors, but the city will amaze you with its historical center, which has preserved its character and spirit. It’s safe here. Walking around the night city, be it Tashkent, Samarkand or Bukhara, you do not have to worry about your safety. You will be welcomed my friendly local people who like to talk to tourists and tell about the country, share their culture and traditions.

Спасибо огромное за наш удвивительный тур в сказку. Это было просто потрясающе. Начиная от поезда))) Ташкент-Хива, советская классика) Хива- города сказочной красоты. Спасибо огромное нашему гиду Тимуру, очень умный парень! Размещение в гостинице 10/10. Чисто. Отличный ремонт, кондиционеры работают. Очень сытный и вкусный завтрак. Побыв сутки в Хиве, нас ждал трансфер 7 часов до Бухары. Дорога не из легких, но от увиденной красоты все как рукой сняло. По приезду нас встретила прекрасная девушка Нигина. За два дня она погрузила в историю Бухарского ханства, быта, культуры и традиций! Отель в котором мы остановились это настоящий караван сарай!!! Зайдя туда, ты оказываешься в 18 веке! Сутки и снова нас ждал путь, в этот раз скоростной сдвоенный поезд Афросиоб. 2 часа и мы в Самарканде! Самарканд,- жемчужина Узбекистана. Месяца не хватит, что бы узнать его полностью.
