Although it only gained full independence in 1991, Uzbekistan boasts a rich history filled with legendary conquests by the likes of Tamerlane and Alexander the Great. Major tourist attractions in Uzbekistan include centuries-old cities (once oases along the Silk Road), seemingly endless deserts, soaring mountains that serve as popular ecotourism playgrounds, and ancient fortresses untouched by the passage of time. Visitors flock to this landlocked Central Asian country to hike, ski, bird-watch, and stay in traditional yurt camps. Consider beginning your tour of Uzbekistan in Tashkent, where modern glass-fronted office buildings stand in stark contrast to decaying Soviet-era apartment blocks.
