Uzbekistan

Sail down the beautiful rivers

Overview

A land of exotic beauty and ancient culture, Uzbekistan has been immortalized as being one of the most important countries on the ancient Silk Road between Beijing and Istanbul. Thriving cities have grown out of ancient caravanserais that punctuate the rugged Central Asian landscape.

At one point in history, Uzbekistan saw the pinnacle of Mongol and Tartar culture and even today, one can see the remains of a great empire in cities like Bukhara, Samarkand and Khiva. Uzbekistan has spawned two of history’s greatest conquerors – Timur the Lame (Tamerlane) and Ghenghis Khan.

Uzbekistan is also known for its delicious cuisine, exquisite textile traditions, and stunning architecture, much of which has been preserved and can be explored even today. Imposing gateways embellished with calligraphy, soaring minarets, and graceful domes lend their elegance to the destination.

In the true tradition of the caravanserais, bustling bazaars heave with excitement. The Uzbeks are a proud people of great heritage. Lively and spirited and always ready with a smile, warm hospitality embraces everyone who visits. Retrace the ancient Silk Route and explore the exotic beauty of Uzbekistan with Exeter International.
