The Holy City

There is such a beautiful city in Uzbekistan, which is already about two thousand years old. The city is famous not only for its anciety, but also for the historical heritage, including the constructions starting from 10th up to 17th centuries. During this period, it was not only one of the busiest places on the Great Silk Road, but also the center of Islamic World. This is the reason why they also call Bukhara as the Holy City.

Besides breathtaking views of ancient, yet majestic buildings, the city is famous for its legendary individuals. As an example we can call one of the greatest scholars in Islam, the author of the greatest book of hadith (sayings of prophet Muhammad s.a.v.), imam Al-Bukhari.

The city is so rich in history that you may want to explore as much as possible. So, I would like you to go ahead and click here for more interesting details on Bukhara.

Tashkent-Samarkand

Awww!!! My dear friends, I could do nothing but share this precious thing with you today!!!

I invite you guys to watch this beauuutiful clip of an Uzbek singer, which was not only just taken in two beautiful cities of Uzbekistan, Tashkent and Samarkand, but also was actually devoted to them! This is not the one, which was made with the latest technology, but still it will let you feel at least a little taste of those destinations.

I’d like to note that the singer is really very famous in Uzbekistan with the name Lola. She has been to so many foreign countries and despite that you can still see how much she loves her motherland!

Museum under the sky

What you see in the picture above looks a lot like some ancient city, which used to exist centuries before. However, I am really glad to inform that this is not only the history, but also the precious destination, with which Uzbekistan feels full of pride! Dear friends, welcome to Samarkand!

Samarkand is the land of wonders, beautiful history and bright culture. This is the place, where each and every tourist in Central Asia wishes to find himself. Those, who are familiar with history are aware that the city had been the center of development during each civilization it went through. For instance, during the times of Amir Temur (Tamerlan), the most beautiful symbols of architecture were built.

Great poets, scientists and leaders have also left irreplacable gifts – loads of knowledge and wisdom in their masterpieces, most of which were able to survive till our days and are translated into many other languages.

Looking at the past…

Hearing about the beauty of Tashkent or joining the Uzbekistan Tour nowadays, the one may not even imagine what kind of hardships this city went through just recently…

Would you ever believe if I say that all of those above were built in just 50 years? Pretty difficult to do so… However, this is the truth.

In 1966, there happened a very horrible earthquake in this very territory, which destroyed  more than thirty thousands houses and left the city almost unrecognizable. It said to have experienced about seven hundred pushes on 8-9 scale.

Thanks Lord, today you will see no sign of that disaster; only the monument built for the memory of that day stands alone…

Capital of Uzbekistan

I am really excited to share my impressions on this beautiful city with you guys! Tashkent is the capital of Central Asia’s Pearl, Uzbekistan. It is also said to be the biggest city of th country with the population of more than two million citizens. This is really impressing when compared to the population of Kyrgyzstan as a whole (just more than five million people)!

Tashkent has been in the center of attention during variety of governments through history. Its unique name is literally translated as “Stone City”. Many associate this with the fact that unlike its neighbor regions, the territory is plain and rich with stones without valleys or hills.

Nowadays, Tashkent is developing so rapidly that the one, who visited a month ago, may not be able to recognize it when he comes back! There is a big variety of facilities to the visitors and locals for entertainments and therefore it already became the city of many people’s dream!

Pearl of Central Asia

Silk Road is a book, which so rich with beauties, history and each of its part is a separate chapter out of that huge book. We have discovered its center, Kyrgyzstan, for a while now and we have enough of an idea what kind of a destination it is for foreigners. Now the turn comes to another important part of the great route…

Uzbekistan is that very place, also called as the Pearl of Central Asia. This country has been keeping its culture, treasures from Silk Road as pupil of an eye. Therefore it stands out among many countries with bright traditions, values and beauty of the country itself. Below is a short welcome for You to the land of wonders!

Visit Canyons

Let me remind you again how Great the Silk Road is! On this way there are so many wonders, beautiful adventures which will be hardly seen in other places. There can be the same attractions here from the west, but what is found here is definitely rare in other side of the world!

For instance, they may say that Grand Canyon is one of a kind nature’s wonder in the whole world. However, let me take you guys to the little country Kyrgyzstan, which hides almost the same treasure as Americans have! That is the canyons of Konorchek, located not far from Bishkek city.

The canyons strech up to 200 km, which makes it impossible to explore the place for one day. It also reminds the person of a difficult labyrynth and this is what makes it more attractive!
