Uzbekistan Holidays

Slap bang on the trading routes that linked the great civilisations of China and the Mediterranean for centuries, Uzbekistan is world-renowned for its glorious Silk Route cities: Samarkand, Bukhara and Khiva.

Samarkand is awash with history with Registan Square, possibly the most recognisable of all Central Asia’s monuments, at its heart. Bhukara boasts a historic legacy stretching back over 16 centuries, evident in the hundreds of mosques and madrasas that dot the city, and Khiva is a medieval wonderland of minarets, mosques and bazaars that is utterly enchanting.

The capital Tashkent is a quirky mix of modern and brutalist Soviet architecture, with a metro system that rivals Moscow’s for grandeur. The desert region of Karakalpakstan is a wonderful place to observe traditional nomad life, observe startling starry skies and explore the desolate sights of the fast disappearing Aral Sea.
