Uzbekistan Holidays

Uzbekistan is perhaps the most evocative country in Central Asia, with its splendid old Silk Road cities that conjure up images of its glorious past. Our Uzbekistan holidays are designed to show the very best that the country has to offer, and this short trip covers the key highlights within just a week. We start in the capital Tashkent, seeing its historic quarter and bustling bazaar before flying west to the walled city of Khiva. Exploring this architectural gem is like entering another era, with imposing mosques, minarets and tombs around every corner, all superbly preserved. Crossing the Kyzyl Kum desert we reach Bukhara, once a powerful khanate and with monuments dating back a thousand years, including the impressive Chor Minor mosque, the Ark, and the Lyabi Hauz. Finally our journey takes us to fabled Samarkand where we explore its magnificent Registan Square, the Bibi Khanum Mosque and the observatory of Ulug Beg among other spectacular sights. For those short on time but wanting an insight into this ever mysterious region, this tour offers a chance to understand the fascinating history of the Silk Road.
