Places to visit in Uzbekistan

See our recommended places to visit in Uzbekistan, where you can soak up the architecture in Samarkand, Khiva and Bukhara

Uzbekistan’s strategic position along the ancient Silk Route brought it enough wealth to build three of Central Asia’s most architecturally impressive cities: Samarkand, Khiva and Bukhara. Our specialists have been to all three, as well as the other main sights in Uzbekistan. Using their first-hand experience, they can help you plan where to go on your trip.

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.
