Introduction About Uzbekistan Silk Road Tour

Uzbekistan is the show stopper of Central Asia and probably the most fascinating destination in the whole medieval world. It is the at the core of cultural and architectural wonders of Central Asia.

For centuries, the Silk Road was the world’s trading superhighway, and Uzbekistan was at its very very centre. With its ancient cities, blue domed architecture and bloody history - almost everyone wants to do visit Tashkent, Samarkand, Bukhara and Khiva - once in their lives.

Uzbekistan lies mainly between two major rivers, the Syr Darya to the northeast and the Amu Darya to the south. We would visit the most iconic landmark towns of Tashkent, Samarkand, Bukhara, Khiva (and Nukus), if you have more days.
