The history of Uzbekistan, Central Asia’s cradle of culture, located between two large rivers Amu Darya and Syr Darya, has its roots in the fabled Silk Road and is threaded throughout its modern-day existence. Its unique and fascinating architecture is the legacy of countless conquests and empires over two millennia.
The charm of its magnificent titled cities and vast deserts is inescapable. Tashkent, Khiva, Bukhara and Samarkand were key stop-offs for traders and have all been painstakingly restored to their former glory.
