GD Uzbekistan Classic Tour 2015
Due to its geographical location the land of the Uzbek people was always at the crossroad of migrations and invasions. This brought different cultures and civilizations to the region. The Great Silk Road passed through this land making famous the cities of Tashkent, Samarkand and Bukhara.
Tashkent is now a modern city and the capital of Uzbekistan. It is also the largest city in Central Asia. Equipped with minarets and mausoleums, mosques and madrassahs, Samarkand and Bukhara are known for monuments from the bygone days. Those were the days of the remarkable brick and tile structures – masterpieces of many constructors and artisans. One of the largest open-air museums is Khiva, near Urgench. It is the most preserved ensemble of all the ancient Central Asian settlements.
