Uzbekistan at a Glance

Silk Road

If you’ve always wanted to experience the world famous Silk Road but didn’t have the time to travel the full journey, Uzbekistan is the place to visit. The Central Asian section of it is far less traveled but shows no less to see. It winds through the three most exquisite cities: Khiva, Bukhara and Samarkand which are famous for their magnificent walled cities of limestone and sapphire, ingeniously detailed mosaics of jewels and marble.

World's Best Ruins

Uzbekistan is well known for its ancient ruins. One of the most famous ruins is the ancient city of Itchan Kala in Khiva. It is now an open air museum in the center of the Silk Road Destination and the largest intact walled city in Central Asia. It is a sight for sore eyes, with its sandy – colored buildings and their marble, turquoise roofs and towers. Thanks to its’ isolated location, it barely gets crowded, –making it the perfect get away spot, regardless of its popularity in tourism books.

Weather

Spring (April to June) and Fall (September through October) are the best times to travel. In Fall it is harvest time, and the markets are full of fresh fruits. With beautiful mountains and ski sites, Uzbekistan during winter is also a sight to behold.

Hospitality

Hospitality is one of the famous Uzbekistan features. Hospitality in Uzbek families is appreciated higher than the wealth of a table and prosperity of the family. Not to receive a guest means to disgrace the family.

Shopping

Uzbekistan is famous for the traditional, colorful bazaars of Central Asia which are heaped with unique fashions of Uzbek clothing, rare and exotic spices, mouthwatering sweets and exquisitely crafted arts and jewelry.

Security

For the most part, Uzbekistan is generally safe for visitors. When in Uzbekistan, one should avoid the areas bordering Afghanistan and the Ferghana Valley bordering Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan.
