Present Uzbekistan is the cradle of a mindboggling arsenal of architecture and ancient cities. The most fascinating places include the colourful Samarkand, Bukhara and Khiva with their madrasas, mosques and mausoleums located on the Golden Route; a route which is even today an integral part of the 5000 mile long, legendary silk road between China and Rome. A visit to Uzbekistan is a true exploration and especially a journey back in time. Yellow-coloured sand dunes, tombs of nobility and kings, mosques and minarets, buzzing traditional markets with aromas of herbs and spices, a very hospitable population; they all become part of your travel story through Uzbekistan.
