Samarkand is a Silk Road which will move us directly to the world of fairytales. In a beautiful architectural complex with the Registan square and madrasa of Ulugh-Beg, Tilla Kari, and Shir Dar we’ll admire the sunrays over the azure dome of a former Islamic school reaching the impressive mihrabs. In one of the most populated cities in the world which architectural magnificence was created by the best artists and craftsmen from Uzbekistan we’ll visit impressively decorated mausoleum of Gur-e-Amir and necropolis Shahi Zinda from which we’ll get to 20 spectacular, shining, turquoise tombs. Another attractions include the Samarkand Observatory and the secrets of traditional papermaking and diner in a local restaurant in the evening.
Colorful caravans of buyers have been coming to Bukhara‐ye Sharif which is an important spot on the Silk Road famous for flea market where you can buy actually everything: fruit, cheese, spices, furs, china, carpets. Bukhara is also abundant with Islamic architecture of old city across which walked Avicenna himself. We’ll get familiar with the mysteries of citadel Ark, the “death tower” of Kalyan Minaret, Ismail Samani mausoleum, Po-i-Kalyan complex with a breathtaking Mir-i Arab, Lab-i Hauz and other monuments enlisted in UNESCO. Other attractions in the evening we’ll see: regional and national garment show and incredible sounds of holy Uzbekistan city.
Behind high fortress in color of sand there is an open-air museum full of life – Itchan Kala the inner walled inner town and historical part enlisted in UNESCO. Behind the main Western gate Ota Darwoza, we will see the most recognizable symbols of the city: Kalta Minor – minaret in color of white and turquoise. The next destination is Kuhn Ark which is a residence of Khiva’s khans and a minaret decorated with beautiful mihrabs. Next attractions will be: Tash Hauli Palace, Allah Quli Khan Madrasahs and Djuma mosque from which we can see a hypostyle supported by 213 wooden hand-crafted columns. Khiva is the example of cities in which time doesn’t fly and people enjoy calm rythm of everyday life.
We will discover places hard to believe they exist even when you see them for yourselves: incredible monumental architecture and endless landscapes which are lopsided, grey and sometimes even forgotten. We will see places which are very close to Europe but also very remote at the same time. We will take a walk across city streets that never sleep where most desirable fashion designers have their showrooms and where you can visit the best hairdressers and gyms even in the middle of the night and where you can visit small provinces in which people live in flats for multiple families or wooden cottages with no bathroom, running water, heating, not to mention TV or Internet. We will witness peculiar local customs, listen to stories filled with lament over previous socialist system. This is the best place for you to experience what a full of absurd and contrasts post-Soviet reality actually looks like.
