    The majestic and beautiful city of Samarkand is situated in the valley of the Zarafshan River. It is the second largest city of Uzbekistan and dates back to the time of Babylon and the height of the Roman Empire. In its 2,500-year history, Samarkand has witnessed upheavals during the times of Alexander the Great, the Arabic Conquest and Genghis-Khan.
    A crossroads and melting pot of the world's cultures, Samarkand has been declared a World Heritage Site. Founded in the 7th century BC as ancient Afrosiab, Samarkand had its most significant development in the Timurid period from the 14th to 15th centuries.
    Enjoy a full day of sightseeing in this fascinating city, starting with the Bibi Khanum mosque and tomb, and see the Shahi Zinda necropolis. We also tour the Afrosiab Museum, built on the site of the archeological dig at the ancient first settlement of Samarkand. Explore its amazing findings from the 4th to 13th century.
    In 1404, Timur the Great ordered the construction of the Mausoleum Guri-Emir (Tomb of Emir) for one of his grandsons. The mausoleum eventually became the family crypt of the Timurids Dynasty. The majesty and lightness of its lines and shapes, and the richness of the multi-colored mosaics, make it a unique monument of Central Asian architecture, and an interesting visit.
    Tamerlane’s grandson Ulug Bek was fascinated by the stars and the cosmos and built one of the most advanced observatories of the ancient world. The observations, which he undertook with the naked eye only, predated the telescope by over 150 years. We end today’s sightseeing with a visit to the Ulugbek’s Observatory.

It is located at the intersection point of six roads that ran from each of the city gates. The square is adorned with majestic buildings including madrassahs, mosques and caravanserais. The three sides are formed by Madrassah Ulugbek (1420,) the highest religious institution and a kind of university of the Middle Ages; Sher Dor (1636,) which means "building with lions;" and Tilla Kari (1660), which translates to "trimmed with gold.”
