Reasons to Visit Uzbekistan

  • Architecture

    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.

  • Culture

    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.

    Culture
  • History

    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.

  • Markets

    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!

  • Silk Route cities

    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.
