TRIP DESCRIPTION

UZBEKISTAN THE HEART OF CENTRAL ASIA

The jewel of Central Asia, which was for years the center of the Eastern trade center on the Silk Road, is today an open country mixed with cultures, with temples and old towns that seem to be taken from a movie.

Until a few years ago, Uzbekistan was a country completely closed to tourism and now it focuses a lot of effort on teaching its culture to the world.

On this trip we will take a trip to the past, visiting the main cities of that golden age and which left behind mosques, bazaars and wonderful architectural works. We will visit Tashkent, its capital, Samarkand, Khiva and Bukhara.

One of the things that will surprise you the most about the country is its mix of cultures and ethnic groups. The various religions that have passed through the region over the years have made it a very tolerant and open society. It is a secular country throughout and have a Muslim majority. Its people are very hospitable and open. It is a totally safe country to travel.
