Uzbekistan is one of the Central Asian countries with the most favorable climate for recreation. There is no harsh winter here, and the tourist season lasts all year round. The Great Silk Road passed through the cities of Uzbekistan, which left its indelible historical mark. In every city you can find ancient architectural monuments of different centuries, which are adjacent to traditional domed bazaars and modern buildings.

Most of the tourists who arrive in the country find themselves in the capital β€” Tashkent. There are flights here from different cities of Russia. Tashkent is a real city of contrasts. A mosque built many centuries ago and an ultramodern shopping center with many branded retailers and the most progressive entertainment can stand on the same street next door. There is a modern secular society here, which has preserved many traditions and cultural features.

Tashkent is not called an oasis for nothing β€” the city is famous for its abundance of greenery and parks. There are many tourist excursion programs here. The city is located very close to the foothills of the Tien Shan. Therefore, those who come here on a tour are recommended to visit the mountain resorts located in the area of the Ugam-Chatkal Nature Reserve and the Charvak reservoir. Most of the mountain resorts are located in the most picturesque places with clean mountain air and beautiful views of the water surrounded by rocky mountains.

Historical cities of Uzbekistan

Buying a tour to Uzbekistan, it is impossible not to visit the famous historical cities β€” Samarkand, Bukhara, Khiva and some others. Most of them were large retail outlets along one of the branches of the Great Silk Road. There are flights from Tashkent to Samarkand and Bukhara. Or you can go on a trip on the high-speed train "Afrosiab".

One of the most interesting cities β€” Samarkand β€” was once the capital and abode of the famous Amir Temur (Tamerlane). Now you can visit the place of his burial β€” Gur Emir. His family members also rest here. Many other historical monuments are scattered literally all over the city: the famous Registan city Square, the Shahi-Zinda necropolis, the Bibi-Khanum Mosque and many others.

Another city where it is impossible not to come on tour is Bukhara. This is a real open-air museum. Most of the historical monuments are located in the historical center. Here you can also stay in a hotel. In order to plunge into the authenticity of this city, it is worth choosing hotels for accommodation, organized in houses previously owned by Bukhara Jews. Special architecture with columns, carved balconies and spacious courtyards β€” they have completely preserved the spirit of their time. In Bukhara, you should definitely visit the Ark β€” the city fortress of the Bukhara Khan. Numerous tours lead here, and an excursion can be booked directly at the hotel.
