Things to do in Uzbekistan
A little-visited but tremendously rewarding destination, Uzbekistan sits on the path of the ancient Silk Route and offers visitors a wealth of things to do. The country's fascinating history is the source of most attractions and activities, with the three architectural jewels of the Silk Route, Samarkand, Bukhara and Khiva well worth exploring for their dazzling structures and vibrant bazaars.
In Samarkand the monumentally ornate edifices of Registan Square are amongst the oldest medressas in the world, Bukhara is renowned for its extraordinary mosques and minarets, while Khiva’s well-preserved old city is like an open-air museum piece.
