Uzbekistan on the Silk Road
The cities of modern Uzbekistan sparkle under the bright sun like pearls scattered along the Silk Road. The country is especially rich in historical artifacts. Life always boiled there, new cities emerged older ones quickly grew, trade and crafts developed. All of that was possible due to the country’s favorable position in the picturesque oasis right in the center of the Silk Road routes. In this way such known Uzbek cities as Samarkand, Bukhara, Khiva, Tashkent, Termez, Urgench, and Fergana served as land beacons along the Silk Road.
