Uzbekistan`s advantageous geographical location on the crossroads of Central Asia, linking North and South, east and west worlds, made this country an important center on the caravan route known in history as The Great Silk Road. The cities of Samarkand, Bukhara and Khiva were major merchant stopping points along this route. Not only did trade develop along this transcontinental route, but there was also an active exchange of ideas, inventions, culture, traditions, religions, crafts and technologies. In addition to playing this splendid role, the Great Silk Road network became a major player in the development and enrichment of world civilization. As a result, a lively mix of Zoroastrianism, Islam, Buddhism and other religions may be seen in traditions of Uzbekistan today.

Travelling through Uzbekistan is beyond a doubt an unforgettable experience. Let Uzbekistan become a part of your life.
