Reasons to Visit
Crumbing archaeological ruins, imposing Islamic monuments and stark Soviet buildings sit alongside one another in Uzbekistan, a constant reminder of the nation’s chequered and indeed lengthy history.
Uzbekistan is a Muslim country, but there is a distinctly Russian influence as well. Mosques and local dress contribute to the Central Asian feel, while at night the vodka flows in the local restaurants.
Uzbekistan's history is dominated by five conquerors, including Alexander the Great and the unstoppable Genghis Khan. Islam took root, slowly, and Soviet rule dominated, oppressively.
The bazaars and markets of Uzbekistan are vibrant, raucous and exciting, with the national pastime of haggling employed with great vigour. Start low and enjoy the banter!
The names of Khiva, Bukhara and Samarkand inspire today the same excitement and allure as they have done to Silk Road travellers for hundreds of years.
