Uzbekistan: Silk road treassures

Architectural treasures

In the heart of Central Asia, where the ancient Silk Road once thrived, you’ll find cities like Samarkand, Bukhara, and Tashkent. These cities preserve UNESCO heritage in art and architecture, and as you stroll through them, you can explore their beauty.

The architecture is so beautiful that you’ll be astonished every time you visit these places.


The cities of Tashkent, Bukhara and Samarkand are over 2000 years old. While Tashkent has around 4 million inhabitants and is the largest agglomeration in Central Asia, the city of Bukhara is roughly the size of Košice.

Beautiful Samarkand is among the oldest cities in the world and is about as old as Rome itself. Samarkand is one of the oldest and most historically significant cities in the region, known for its stunning Islamic architecture, including Registan Square and the Gur-e Amir (Timur the Great) mausoleum.
