The capital, Tashkent, is the main gateway into the country and a mix of modern and Soviet-era buildings. While there, you can visit museums and watch an opera performance. But, the highlight of your trip is likely to be visiting Samarkand’s Registan, a square lined on three sides by opulent madrasas. Or photographing the azure-glazed tiles of Khiva’s mosques. Then there’s Bukhara, seemingly caught in a time warp with its large fortress, 12th-century minaret and frenetic bazaars.
