More information about Uzbekistan

As travel to Uzbekistan increases in popularity, the wonders of this Central Asian country are opened up to the rest of the world and travellers become more eager to discover this enchanting destination themselves. Landlocked by several other Central Asian nations, Uzbekistan was formerly part of the Soviet Republic and has remained a little known cultural gem for decades. It is a predominantly an Islamic country, although it’s long history ensures that it enjoys a fascinating mix of Persian, Soviet and Asian influence, perhaps due to its significant role in the fabled Silk Road route, an important trade route that once connected the Mediterranean to Asia.

On any package holiday to Uzbekistan, the capital of Tashkent will stand out for its modern feel, Soviet-era architecture, soaring Tashkent Tower, which dominates the skyline, and an array of cultural institutions. The city is an obvious starting point for tours of Uzbekistan, although the most iconic sights are found in Samarkand, Khiva and Bukhara, where you cannot ignore the plentiful madrasas, mausoleums and mosques; perfectly photographable in their intricate beauty. The Silk Road once ran through these cities, and its influence can be seen in the unique architecture, cuisine and culture of the region. Travel to Uzbekistan can transport you to the ancient days of mercantile trade and far-flung exploration. Samarkand’s Registan Square captivates travellers and locals alike with its mosaiced madrasas composed of what seems like a million unique shades of blue. Uzbekistan has maintained it’s rich architecture to admirable standards.

Uzbekistan’s flat terrain and moderate climate, with long hot summers and mild winters, make it the perfect place for a holiday full of discovery and cultural appreciation. Nature lovers will enjoy the natural reserves outside of the cities such as the Jeyran Ecological Centre, which promotes the preservation of the endangered Central Asian Gazelle and the Kyzylkum Tugai and Sand Reserve, which is home to a plethora of bird species.

Undoubtedly, when you enjoy a tour package to Uzbekistan, you will be greeted with warm and genuine hospitality, fostered in the days of the Silk Road when weary travellers would stop in the country to enjoy the wonderful generosity of the Uzbek people.
